VA-127 was established in 1962 and became VFA-127 on March 1, 1987. In the beginning the unit was known as “Royal Blues”, nicknamed “Batmen” but in 1981 became “Cylons”. VFA-127 was designated as a Navy aggressor squadron. VFA-127 called NAS Fallon home from October 1, 1987 until March 23, 1996 when they were disestablished. VFA-127 operated the F/A-18A/B Hornet from March 1992 until dissolution in 1996. The excess aircraft were sent to other units or sold to other countries. 162416 was sold to Spain in 1995 and became C.15-75.

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.
