The McDonnell Douglas (now Boeing) F/A-18 Hornet is a supersonic twin engine all-weather night fighter and attack aircraft. The F/A-18s first flew in November 1978 and the first production flight on April 12, 1980. The first 380 aircraft were F/A-18As and in September 1987 production switched to the F/A-18C. Variants A and C are single-seat aircraft while B and D are tandem-seats. The Hornet can operate from either aircraft carriers or land bases with the capability of in flight refueling. A total of 1,480 A-D variants were built.

After the first Gulf War the Kuwaiti Air Force acquired the modern McDonnell Douglas single- seat F-18C and two-seat D variants. Delivery of the F-18s to Kuwait began in the first half of 1992 with 31 F-18/Cs and 8 F-18/Ds being added to the inventory by 2005. F-18/C # 428 MSN 1179 operates with the KAF 25 Fighter and Attack Squadron located at Ahmed al Jaber AB along with the 9 FAS. Even numbered serials belong to 25 Squadron and odd numbered serials belong to the 9 Squadron.
