Finnish Air Force F / A-18C / D Hornet fighters (in deck configuration) performed takeoff and landing on the airfield section of the highway.
Of particular interest is the use of the hook and flying in low light conditions.
We also note the use of an aerofiner cable, which is used on aircraft carriers in order to reduce the stopping distance of an aircraft.
The McDonnell Douglas F/A-18 Hornet is a twin-engine, supersonic, all-weather, carrier-capable, multirole combat jet, designed as both a fighter and attack aircraft (hence the F/A designation). Designed by McDonnell Douglas (now part of Boeing) and Northrop (now part of Northrop Grumman), the F/A-18 was derived from the latter’s YF-17 in the 1970s for use by the United States Navy and Marine Corps. The Hornet is also used by the air forces of several other nations, and formerly, by the U.S. Navy’s Flight Demonstration Squadron, the Blue Angels.
