place in aircraft history. The YF-17 was one of
two prototypes tested in the U.S. Air Force Air

resulted in the selection and manufacture of the
F-16 as the next generation free world fighter.

Navy’s F/A-18 aircraft.

EA-18G Growler: A Developmental and
Operational History
Brad Elward. The F/A-

2000 study, which evaluated ways to enhance

has served the Navy well. The EA-18G brought
many of the Super Hornet’s attributes into the
electronic attack community.
