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 December 2004 VF-103 “Jolly Rogers” returned from a deployment and retired their F-14Bs for the newer F/A-18F Super Hornet. In 2005, along with the new aircraft came a new designation for the “Jolly Rogers”, VFA-103. On May 22, 2018 VFA-103 was assigned to USS Abraham Lincoln CVW-7. The CAG aircraft, F/A-18F Super Hornet (BuNo 168493) received special markings to celebrate the squadron’s 75th Anniversary (1943 – 2018). The inner part of the left fin lists the squadrons that have been “Jolly Rogers” over the years.
