The only colourful Hornet/Growler topside was the CAG aircraft for VFA-87, who still operate the original F/A-18A model. With not enough E/F variant Super Hornets being procured to equip all USN strike fighter squadrons, and the slighter later C model fast wearing out, several units have had to revert back to the old A variant.
