This skin commemorates NASA's Space Shuttle program, which ran from 1972 to 2011. It includes a complete exterior skin for the F/A-18C and its fuel tank. The skin takes inspiration from each of the Space Shuttles and does not mimic a specific Shuttle in particular.
The Space Shuttle is one of the most iconic spacecraft of the space age. With over 135 missions spanning over 1322 days, orbiting the Earth 20,952 times, travelling a distance of over 500 million miles, the Space Shuttle program has earned its reputation as a symbol of science and human perseverance.
Take to the skies with this skin and get a feel for what real speed is. Do an unrestricted climb straight through the atmosphere and be sure to hold nothing back. Suit up, sit back, and arm the ejector seat. This will NOT be a smooth ride.
