Default Hornets to Canada (Whats Old is New Again)

Canada receives first two RAAF classic Hornets

The Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) has commenced the drawdown of its classic Hornet fleet with the delivery of the first two F/A-18A/Bs to the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF).

The two F/A-18A single-seat classic Hornets, RAAF tail numbers A21-53 and A21-55, arrived at Canadian Forces Base Cold Lake in Alberta on February 16, following their deployment to Exercise Red Flag 19-1 in Nevada.

The sale to Canada, which was confirmed in December, covered a total of 25 aircraft 18 RAAF Hornets as interim fighters to complement their fleet of similarly configured CF-18s, and a further seven jets to be used as spares and test articles.
