Swiss Air Force F/A-18C Hornet Solo Display Team

Country Switzerland
Unit Fliegerstaffel 17
Base Payerne
Aircraft 1 x F/A-18C Hornet

In 2014, the Swiss Air Force (Schweizer Luftwaffe) F/A-18C Hornet solo display is flown by Hauptmann Julien "Teddy" Meister from Fliegerstaffel 17, Payerne. The Swiss Hornets delivered in the 1990s were the first Hornets that could be stressed up to +9g rather than the +7.5g limit, and no longer have the angle-of-attack limiter. The Swiss Hornet Display showcases this with high AoA maneuvers throughout the routine, including a square loop.
