Beginning in 1992 VFA-25 transitioned to the new F-18C variant and in 2012 transitioned to the F-18E Super Hornet. In 1998 VFA-25 deployed onboard the USS Abraham Lincoln for the first time. In 2003 VFA-25 sailed to the Arabian Gulf to enforce the no-fly zone in Iraq. F/A-18C #164633 was delivered to VFA-25 in October 1991 and served as the CAG aircraft.

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.
