F/A-18A Hornet - "Fighting Omars"


by John Ellingson

HyperScale is proudly supported by Squadron




"The Fighting Omars" are F/A-18A and B adversary aircraft attached to VFC-12 based at Oceana, Virginia.



These photographs were taken at the EAA Oshkosh fly-in during 2000. They may be helpful to modelers using the decals for aircraft of the Fighting Omars from Two Bobs Aviation Graphics, although the details will be relevant to anyone building a Hornet.

The images were taken with a Nikon D-1 camera and processed in Photoshop.
