The original squadron was established in 1943 as the “Tough Kitties” and re-commissioned in 1952 as VF-94 nicknamed the “Mighty Shrikes”. On June 18, 1990 the “Mighty Shrikes” received their first F-18C and on the June 28th were re-designated Strike Fighter Squadron 94 (VFA-94) call-sign “Hobo”. While aboard the USS Nimitz, VFA-94 took part in several operations including Operation Iraqi Freedom. F/A-18C Hornet Bu No. 164048 was delivered to the U.S. Navy in July 1990 and has spent more than 14 years with the “Mighty Shrikes”.

The McDonnell Douglas (Boeing) F/A-18 Hornet is a supersonic, twin-engine, all-weather night fighter/ attack aircraft flown by the U.S. Navy, U.S. Marine Corps and several allied nations. The F/A-18 was first flown on November 18, 1978 with the first production flight taking place on April 12, 1980. The first 380 F/A-18s were the A version and in September 1987 production switched to the F/A-18C. Variants A and C are single-seat while B and D variants are tandem-seats. The Hornet can operate from either aircraft carriers or land bases and have the capability of in-flight refueling. A total of 1,480 A-D variants were built.
