VFA-37 “Ragin’ Bulls” was established in 1966 as VF-37 and equipped with the A-7 Corsair II. In November 1990 VF-37 became VFA-37 when they received the new McDonnell Douglas F/A-18 Hornet. F/A-18C Hornet #165187 is part of VFA-37 ‘Ragin’ Bulls” that was re-assigned from the aircraft carrier USS Harry Truman (CVN-75) to the USS George H. W. Bush (CVN-77). VFA-37 is due to make its first USS George H.W. Bush deployment on January 21, 2017 for a six month cruise to the Mediterranean and Arabian Gulf.

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.
