Hornet has new home in WA

Once a proud member of the Royal Australian Air Force’s fleet, F/A-18 Hornet A21-101 has now found a new home at the Air Force Association’s Aviation Heritage Museum of Western Australia.

After years of dedicated service, A21-101 was retired from active duty in 2021. The Aviation Heritage Museum saw an opportunity to acquire a piece of Australian military history and began the process of securing the aircraft.
The Hornet was carefully transported and soon visitors to the museum can see the F/A-18 Hornet A21-101 up close and personal, next to another iconic aircraft, the Tornado GR4. The Hornet is a testament to the skill and dedication of the Royal Australian Air Force and serves as a reminder of the sacrifices made by those who served to protect their country.
