This USMC Hornet was an FA-18A+ model that served with VMFA-115 "Silver Eagles".
It was the assigned Hornet of CAG Capt P.F. Rainey and DCAG Capt J.K. Cook.
I have included two "line" Hornets, one tail-coded "AC" from the same cruise aboard the USS Harry S. Truman,
the other a later Hornet, coded "VE", based at MCAS Beaufort. This one also has the legend: "Silver Eagles" painted
on the fuel tanks.
