Photo Comment

This was one of 8 RAAF Hornets attending the Australian International Airshow. Built by CAC as a Block 20 Hornet, it was delivered on 29 January 1988. It suffered an engine fire in '93 and was repaired in the USA, returning in '95. Went to the Gulf on Ops Bastile and Falconer in 2003 & dropped the RAAF's first bomb in anger since the Vietnam war. Currently with 75 Squadron.
