About this item
The Boeing Hornet is a twin engined multi-role supersonic jet fighter of the 3rd generation. Derived from the McDonnell Douglas YF-17 light-weight fighter concept, its twin-engine reliability, option to carry greater payloads and rugged ability to operate from bare base conditions as well as aircraft carriers made it an ideal choice for both U.S. Navy and Marine Corps looking to replace their 2nd generation fighter and attack types. This pictorial history looks at just the early derivatives of the fighter and its many users.
