USN VFA-106 “Gladiators” is a Fleet Replacement Squadron (FRS) whose primary mission is to provide the fleet with trained replacement aircrews. Aircraft from this squadron are supplied to the TAC Demo Team and appear at airshows to demonstrate the flying capabilities of the F/A-18 Hornet. Pilots are usually assigned to the TAC Demo Team for one year before returning to their squadron. In 2008 F/A-18C Hornet #164630 from VFA-106 was given a special paint scheme to commemorate the 30th Anniversary of the F/A-18 Hornet in service.

The McDonnell Douglas (now Boeing) F/A-18 Hornet is a supersonic, twin-engine, all-weather fighter and attack aircraft flown by the US Navy, US Marine Corps and other 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.
