F/A-18B 161217 had been assigned to VFA-125 Rough Raiders but in 1994 it was assigned to the Dryden Research Center, later known as the Neil Armstrong Research Center. In July 2001 #161217 moved to NASA Edwards AFB with the registration of N852NA. #161217 acted as a chase aircraft equipped with cameras that could send live video back to engineers who could watch what was happening in real time.

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.
