F/A-18A Hornet #A21-29 was accepted by the RAAF in April 1988. In May 1990 while deployed to Clarke Air Base Philippines a Top Hat and Cane were applied to this aircraft’s tail designating it as the C/Os personal aircraft. On August 2, 1990 two F/A-18 Hornet’s (#A21-29 and #A21-42) departed RAAF Tindal on a practice pairs intercept. Maneuvering during these intercepts can be quite violent trying to lock onto the target. Unfortunately A21-42 lost sight of A21-29 and rolled into it killing the A21-42 pilot while A21-29 managed to land safely.Opening canopy
