Re: Long shot: Hornet GIA on board CVN-71

Hi Chris, Bas,

Apologies, you are correct 163449 was coded 68 on the USS Nimitz, 163146 was coded 71 on the USS Roosevelt, I transposed the two earlier. There was also a third FA-18 with black tails on the dockside next to the USS Nimitz that I could not identify.

Regards
John

Re: Long shot: Hornet GIA on board CVN-71

Hi Bas,

I read this hornet off as 163449 early March 2017 from the USS MIdway car park. It was still on the USS Theodore Roosevelt then. It has a serial in the usual spot by the tail.
