Present day VFA-122 "Flying Eagles" Squadron USN was first formed in 1950 as VC-35 and later became VF-122 and was disestablished in 1991. In January 1999 VFA-125 ("legacy" F/A-18 Hornet FRS "Fleet Replacement Squadron") was disestablished so staff and airplanes were absorbed by VFA-122. VFA-122 became the West Coast Hornet and Super Hornet squadron to train USN and USMC replacement pilots and WSOs. Beginning in 2022 the USN training aircraft would make static and Legacy Flight appearances at air shows.

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.
