F/A-18C Hornet Swiss Air Force during takeoff. What a amazing timing during photo shot. Duncan P took the photograph exactly after the jet lift off. Leaving the ground off to the sky. This picture taken at Malta International Airport in Island of Malta. The airport also the only airport in the country. So commercial and military aircraft are being merged. Apparently the Swiss Air Force while on military exercise around its neighbor country. Back to the jet, the -C variant is the modernized single-seat variant. The -C Hornet variant has better avionics and radar systems than the first generation. Per 2015, Swiss Air Force operating 26 F/A-18Cs and 5 F/A-18Ds.
