“River Rattlers” F/A-18 Hornets

F/A-18A from VFA-204 "River Rattlers" spends the night @allianceaviationservices in Ft. Worth, TX.

Blue Angels, NAS Joint Reserve Base New Orleans, Belle Chasse, LA. The Blues' McDonnell Douglas F/A-18 Hornets are former fleet aircraft that are nearly combat-ready. Modifications to each aircraft include removal of the aircraft gun and replacement with the tank that contains smoke-oil used in demonstrations, and outfitting with the control stick spring system for more precise aircraft control input. The standard demonstration configuration has a spring tensioned with 40 pounds (18 kg) of force installed on the control stick as to allow the pilot minimal room for uncommanded movement. The Blues do not wear G-suits, because the air bladders inside them would repeatedly deflate and inflate, interfering with the control stick between the pilot's legs. Instead, Blue Angel pilots tense their muscles to prevent blood from rushing from their heads and rendering them unconscious. #photooftheday #nikon #nikonphotography #instagoodmyphoto #justgoshoot #my_365 #nikonworld_ #nikonworld #nikontop_ #nikonNoFilter #nikon__photography #BlueAngels #USNavy #NASBelleChasse #NASNewOrleans #GoNola
