The U.S. Navy Reserve’s Fighter Jets Are Going Extinct

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

In late 2002, the U.S. military was mobilizing for war in Iraq. In a rare move, the Navy activated one of its reserve fighter squadrons—VFA-201, flying early-model F/A-18 Hornets from Fort Worth, Texas. VFA-201 launched 210 strike missions from the deck of the aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt, dropping 110 tons of ordnance on Iraqi targets. https://medium.com/war-is-boring/the-u-s-navy-reserve-s-fighter-jets-are-going-extinct-ad0d42bc3c28
