Super Hornets fly at NAS.

The first week of 2007 saw Boeing deliver the 11th F/A-18E/F Super Hornet Block 2 to the US Naval Air Station Oceana in Virginia. The Super Hornets are equipped with Raytheon's APG-79 Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) radar, which can track more targets and at a longer range than previous radars. Boeing is delivering the Block 2 aircraft to two squadrons at NAS Oceana, the Black Lions of VFA-213 and the Gladiators of VA-106. The Radar is currently completing an operational evaluation that began in July 2006.
