F/A-18A Hornet A21-39 was ordered by the RAAF in 1981 and delivered in late 1988, entering service with 3 Squadron. Eventually the aircraft was transferred to No 77 Squadron at the RAAF base in Williamtown NSW. In 2020 this aircraft was given a special paint scheme consisting of a dark green spine and tail with 1985-2020 33 Years Hornet painted in white on the tail. The inside surface of the tails had an oriental lion image, the same as on the 77 Squadron crest.

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.
