Description

One of the most potent multi-mission fighters ever built, the rugged McDonnell Douglas F-18 Hornet has been a mainstay of the US Navy and Marine Corps during the last two decades.

Philip has made a classic study of a F/A-18C Hornet from VFA-195, tactical call sign Chippies, flying a fully armed mission exercise near Mount Fuji while detached to Kadena AB, Okinawa.  The colorfully painted squadron CAG bird Chippy Ho, strikes a menacing pose, equipped with AGM-88 missiles, AIM-9L Sidewinders, drop-tanks and sensor pods.

The F-18 demonstrated its effectiveness and versatility during the Gulf War when, on a strike mission and loaded with 2,000-lb bombs, two Hornets from VFA-81 dispatched two Iraqi MiG-21s with Sidewinder and Sparrow missiles, before continuing to complete their bombing mission.

Each print has been personally numbered and autographed by the artist.
