The final four of 24 F/A-18F Super Hornets lined up on the tarmac at RAAF Base Amberley.

In a dramatic show of presence, four new Boeing-built F/A-18F Super Hornets joined up with 16 other Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Super Hornets as they flew over cheering crowds at RAAF Base Amberley recently in Queensland, Australia.

The flyover represented the completion of deliveries of all 24 RAAF Super Hornets ahead of contract schedule.

"The Super Hornet provides a major advancement in capability for the RAAF and the entire Australian Defence Force," said RAAF Group Capt. Steve Roberton, Officer Commanding 82 Wing, Royal Australian Air Force.

"The F/A-18F employs the world’s most advanced combat radar, ensuring our forces have a clear advantage in both technology and capability, whether conducting air, ground or maritime operations,” Roberton added.
