Three F/A-18 Hornets were acquired from the USN by NASA between 1984 and 1991 of which one was a two-seater. One of the single-seats was F/A-18A Hornet #161703, c/n 48/A037, that was delivered to the USN and was flown by the Pacific Missile Test Center (PMTC-60) located at Point Mugu, CA. When it transferred to NASA it was registered as N850NA. The single-seat F/A-18 acted as a chase plane along with the camera equipped N852NA but N850NA was only used for an extra pair of eyes.

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.
