On 8 Nov'86, the Blue Angels completed their 40th anniversary year and unveiled what would be their aircraft through their 75th anniversary year, the F/A-18A/B. Here, a A is going for a new display in their first year of Hornet ops. 161523 is a FY80 a/c which was seen from late '91 at the dump of the Naval Weapons Evaluation Facility Albuquerque (NM). Here it was used in an investigation programme in which aircraft-weapon interfaces were researched to provide USN aircraft with nuclear weapons delivery capability. It was stored at AMARC (1A0008) from 3 May'95 and was scrapped on 12 Sep'18.

This '84 F/A-18A was used by the USNFDS up to 21 Apr'07. During the final minutes of the air show over MCAS Beaufort (SC), the pilots were doing a maneuver which involved all 6 Hornets joining to form a Delta triangle. 162897 did not rejoin and crashed, eight people on the ground got injured and the pilot, Lt.Cmdr. Kevin "Kojak" Davis (Blue Angels #6), was killed. The mishap was caused by a failure to perform a proper Anti-G Straining Maneuver, resulting in the pilot's suffering from possible physiological effects that contributed to his loss of situational awareness of his rate of descent.
