The video we are presenting to our readers an audience was filmed directly by the F/A-18F Super Hornet pilots themselves. These pilots are the part of the “Bounty Hunters” of Striker Fighter Squadron 2. These jets and pilots are embarked upon the USS George Washington Aircraft Carrier CVN 73. The video was taken back in 2015 while the aircraft carrier was deployed in the Sothern Seas within the area of responsibility of the U.S. Naval Forces Southern Command/U.S. 4th Fleet AOR.
This video is a roller coaster of fun for the jet fighter aficionados who love to watch the insane stunts pulled out by these fighter jets. In the video you will be able to see the spectacular collection of
- Air combat
- Formation flying
- Low level flying
- High and low altitude air to air refueling (this includes ‘buddy’ refueling from another Super Hornet)
- Firing practice
- Generation of condense clouds during high ‘g’ maneuvering
Before being deployed, these air craft pilots of the F/A-18F Super Hornets of VFA-2 also participated in the 56th edition of the UNITAS. This happened to be the longest annual maritime exercise which is held in two following phases and at the following time and location.
- One is UNITAS Pacific that is hosted by Chile back in October of 2015
- Other one was UNITAS Atlantic which was hosted by Brazil back in November of 2015
