The F/A-18 Hornet Is Still One Of The Most Badass Fighters Ever Built

Briefly: This dramatic shot is enough to prove that the F/A-18 Hornet fighter/attack jet, which entered operational service more than 30 years ago, is still one of the most badass fighters ever built. Here, an F/A-18F Super Hornet aircraft attached to the Strike Fighter Squadron of (VFA) 102 sits on the aircraft carrier USS George Washington (CVN 73) in the Pacific Ocean on 2 June 2014.
