On October 28, 2016 a celebration was held by the RAAF at base Williamtown NSW. It was the Centenary of the RAAF 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Squadrons that were formed in 1916. One of the paint schemes for this event was completed for the 3rd Squadron aircraft F/A-18A A21-27. The paint scheme commemorates the 3rd Squadron 2nd highest scoring ACEs P-40E Kittyhawk that wore desert camo scheme. Wing Commander R Bobby Gibbes was twice the 3rd Squadron CO and had 10 victories, DSO, DFC and Bar.

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.
