2015 VFA-122 Demo Team Media Guide

    Air shows are the best place to see a VFA-122 Super Hornet in action.  The Tactical Demonstration, or "Tac Demo" team flies the single-seat F/A-18E and two-seat F/A-18F as close to the "edge of the envelope" as safety and prudence allow.  The routine highlights the Rhino's maneuverability and slow-speed handling characteristics and has been very well received around the country.   

    In addition to high-performance demonstrations with a single aircraft, VFA-122 also participates in "Legacy" shows in which Super Hornets fly in formation with classic warbirds like the F-4U Corsair and F6F Hellcat.  Legacy shows provide a unique comparison between where the past and present and provide some great photo opportunities. 

    Even if your local airshow does not have a Tac Demo or Legacy performance, there still may be a VFA-122 Super Hornet present as a "static", or non-flying  display.  The public is typically allowed to approach close to the aircraft, take photos, and most likely meet the crew.
