The first model was launched in 1983. Now the end of the legendary Boeing F/A-18 Super Hornet fighter jet seems to have been sealed. Because orders have been declining for years, the group, which is primarily known for the construction of passenger aircraft, wants to stop production. The celebrity from the Top Gun movies with Tom Cruise doesn't change that.
The end of the F/A-18 marks a turning point in Boeing's fighter jet history. However, the Super Hornet still has a chance.
