Early F-18 Hornet Advertisement

Early F-18 ad (19 April 1976) I have always liked aviation advertisments and Jack Abercrombie send over this one.

Jack says: “Here's an ad from a 19 April 1976 Aviation Week showing the then (early) F-18 configuration.  Note the scaled-up YF-17 LEX, three LEX slots, wing LE snag, short-span ailerons, stabilator with no snag, and strakes on the sides of the nose radome.” It is very interesting to compare this to the later as-built configuration. Enjoy!
