    "Operation Inherent Resolve 2017"
    The McDonnell Douglas Boeing F/A-18E Super Hornet is a twin-engine multi-role carrier-based
    aircraft. The �E� variant is single-seater while the �F� variant is a tandem-seat configuration. The
    �E� is a much larger, more advanced and more capable variant of the F/A-18C. The Super variant
    can carry a larger array of weapons as well as more of them and is capable of returning to the
    carrier while still carrying unspent munitions, a big savings in dollars. The first F/A-18E flight was
    in 1995 and began delivery to the USN in 1999.
    On June 22, 1955 VF-213 �Black Lions� was formed and on April 2, 2006 was re-designated
    VFA-213 when the unit transitioned to the Boeing F/A-18F Super Hornet. VFA-213 is based at
    NAS Oceana, Virginia and assigned to Carrier Air Wing Eight with call-sign �Lion�. In January
    2017 VFA-213 departed on board the USS George H.W. Bush in support �Operation Inherent
    Resolve� and from February 10 until March 9, 2017 carried out operations from the
    Mediterranean Sea. The carrier now sailed to the Persian Gulf and operated there from March
    23, until May 22, 2017.
