F/A-18 HORNET: #18 in the Squadron/Signal Series of Aircraft Walk Around Books -- Navy Aircraft
When the USAF rejected Northrup's plans for the f-17 Cobra in the 1970's, the manufacturer upgraded it into what the US Navy accepted as the F-A-18 Hornet. Today Hornets are among the best and most successful fighter/attack aircraft ever made. Hornets saw extensive combat in the Middle East. This book, with 79 pages, offers outstanding photos of the aircraft, with emphasis on what a pilot would actually see in making a pre-flight observation, or walk-around, of the plane.
