by on Aug.28, 2010, under Aviation, Aviation News, Video of the day

Our video of the day is a great video of the Swizz Air Force F/A 18 with clips taken from a film by film maker Lionel Charlet. The  film really captures a lot of the beauty of flying a military jet, as well as flying over the alps. The McDonnel Douglas F/A-18 Hornet is an all-weather fighter jet, designed to attack both ground and aerial targets. The Hornet is used by the Swiss Air Forces since January 1996. The F/A-18 is a twin engine, mid-wing, multi-mission tactical aircraft. The Hornet is capable of extremely tight turns over a large range of speeds. The Swiss Air Force purchased 26 C models and eight D models. In October 2008 the Swiss Hornet fleet reached the 50000 flight hour milestone.
