USN VFA-83 was formed in April of 1950 as Naval Reserve Fighter Squadron VF-916 “Roaring Bulls”. On February 4 1953, the squadron was re-designated as Fighter Squadron Eighty Three (VF-83) and as Attack Squadron 83 (VA-83) on July 1, 1955 and renamed the “Rampagers” in 1957. In 1966 VA-83 traded their A-4 Skyhawks for the A-7E Corsair which they flew until 1987 when they received the FA-18C and became VFA-83. When they returned from a deployment in 2004 aboard the USS John F. Kennedy they were re-assigned to the USS Eisenhower in 2005.

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.
