Another day at work...

So here I am on another 12 hour "watch" again with my squadron with nothing much to do but look after our jets or specifically F/A-18C Hornets in the hangar and the flightline. I decided to bring along with me my Exceed RC F/A-18F Super Hornet for a paint touch up and some servos that need to be fixed.

I decided to bring my jet out to the hangar and post pictures alongside the full size legacy Hornets. Kinda like 'mini me' type of thing when placed beside the full size counterparts.

No worries. I don't plan on flying this jet in WITHIN this airbase where I'm at, namely NAS Oceana. AMA and FAA regulations does prohibit the use of any radio control flying aircraft in within 3 miles of any operating airfield without proper permission from proper authorities.

I appreciate the kind words, Steve. I'm very passionate about this hobby of RC flying and airplanes in general!

I also enjoy what I do since I love military fighter jets and I work directly with fighter jets. Happy flying!
