Sad day yesterday. Blues took their last flight in the C/D models. Transitioning to the Super Hornet for 2021.

not sure, i know the e/f is bigger but hopefully they feel a little bit more "love" in a newer airframe... be interesting to see if the size changes anything.

They’re actually old schemes, we’re environmentally conscious these days so even the RAAF have to recycle
