The Blue Angels' signature fighter.
The Blue Angels replaced their fleet of A-4 Skyhawks with the F/A-18 Hornet in 1986, and it's been a signature fighter for their routines ever since. In September 2011, the Blue Angels started using a 50/50 blend of conventional jet fuel and biofuel, which is far more environmentally friendly than earlier fuel mixtures. This limited edition kit features new vertical tail wing parts.
