McDonnell Douglas FA-18 Hornet — - I love this photo of the four Primary Blue Angels just starting their show by doing a tight formation takeoff. I took the photo at the 2021 Sun N Fun expo at the Lakeland Florida airport. This was the debut show of the Blue Angels flying their new F18 Super Hornets. It's always a thrill to shoot this amazing performing group of aircraft and pilots. I shot this with a Canon 100-400 IS II lens at the focal length of 248mm. The camera settings were 1/5300 shutter speed, F/5, ISO 500. Please check out my other photography. Positive votes and comments are always appreciated...!!!

Are you sure they're Supers? I thought the Supers were two seaters.

The F model which we have here in Australia is a two seater, but the E model Super Hornet is a single seat.
