F/A-18F A44-210 Bu. 167966 c/n AF-10 was delivered to the RAAF 1 Squadron at Amberley on July 6, 2010. In 2017 this aircraft went to Iraq during Operation Okra, Australia's support against ISIL. In 2016 the aircraft was painted to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of 1 Squadron and still wore the scheme in 2019. From 1950 to 1958 the squadron was based in Singapore, then returned to Australia and was re-equipped with the Canberra. The squadron later flew the F-4; the F-111 and in 2010 the Super Hornet.

McDonnell Douglas F/A-18F Super Hornet

Designed as a replacement for the A-4 Skyhawk and the A-7 Corsair II and as a complement to the F-14 Tomcat, the F/A-18 first flew on November 18, 1978. Perhaps best known as the aircraft of the US Navy's Blue Angels, this carrier-capable, supersonic, all-weather fighter has many roles, including fighter escort, fleet air defense and close air support. The F/A-18 is a versatile aircraft: it can operate from carriers or land bases and a single switch converts it from fighter to strike mode. During Operation Desert Storm, the F/A-18 proved that, on a single mission, one aircraft could serve as both fighter and a bomber.
