The McDonnell Douglas Boeing F/A-18E Super Hornet is a twin-engine multi-role carrier-based aircraft. The “E” variant is single-seater while the “F” variant is a tandem-seat configuration. The “E” is a much larger, more advanced and more capable variant of the F/A-18C. The Super variant can carry a larger array of weapons as well as more of them and is capable of returning to the carrier while still carrying unspent munitions, a big savings in dollars. The first F/A-18E flight was in 1995 and began delivery to the USN in 1999.

In 2001 onboard the USS Enterprise and equipped with the F-14 VF-41 “Black Aces” sailed in support of Operation Southern Watch and Operation Enduring Freedom. In late 2001 when VF-41 returned to NAS Lemoore they transitioned to the F/A-18F Super Hornet and were redesignated VFA-41. In 2011 VFA-41 deployed on the USS John C. Stennis to support Operation Enduring Freedom and the last of Operation New Dawn. After a short stay back at Lemoore VFA-41 and USS John C. Stennis sailed in September 2012 to support Operation Enduring Freedom.
