In 2001 on the USS Enterprise and equipped with the F-14, VF-41 ‘Black Aces’ sailed in support of Operation Southern Watch and Operation Enduring Freedom. In late 2001 when the squadron returned to NAS Lemoore they transitioned to the F/A-18F Super Hornet and were redesignated VFA-41. In 2011, VFA-41 deployed on the USS John C. Stennis to support Operation Enduring Freedom and the last of Operation New Dawn. After a short stay back at Lemoore, VFA-41 and the USS John C. Stennis sailed in September 2012 to support Operation Enduring Freedom.

The McDonnell Douglas Boeing F/A-18E Super Hornet is a twin-engine multi-role carrier-based aircraft. The “E” variant is single-seater while the “F” variant is a tandem-seat configuration. The E is a much larger, more advanced and more capable variant of the F/A-18C. The Super Hornet variant can carry a larger array of weapons as well as more of them and is capable of returning to the carrier while still carrying unspent munitions. The first flight of the F/A-18E took place in 1995 with delivery to the U.S. Navy starting in 1999.
