1/72 Witty Wings US Navy F/A 18F Superhornet VFA 413 Pukin Dogs Sqd
The Hornet Fever has been invaded in my last december 2014 hehehe. The latest variant Hornet in my inventory is from VFA 143 Pukin Dogs Sqd Superhornet E. This witty wings model is the most lost model in Witty Wings production. Pukin Dogs Squadron transitioned to F/A 18 Superhornet E in 2005 after 31 years used the legendary F14 Tomcat.
The first deployment with the F/A-18E commenced in 2006 and ended in the spring of 2007. During the cruise aboard Eisenhower, VFA-143 supported Operations Iraqi Freedom, Enduring Freedom and operations off the Somali coast.
On February 21, 2009 VFA-143 and CVW-7 embarked aboard USS Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN-69) for a deployment supporting Operation Enduring Freedom and maritime security operations in the Persian Gulf. On March 21, 2009 it was reported that USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN-71) was relieved by "Ike". On 30 July 2009, the Eisenhower returned to Naval Station Norfolk after almost a six month deployment.
My ambition next year to accomplish collect all various modern aircraft that has been served in Pukin Dogs Squadron.
