Hornet Ball 2016 Video Is Out...And It Is Awesome!

Rhino Ball 2016 video
The 2016 Hornet Ball video is out, and this year it pays special tribute to the F/A-18E/F Super Hornets, also known as "Rhinos".

This year's Rhino Ball carries on the legacy of previous Hornet Ball videos, with great footage of the F/A-18s in action - as seen from all angles! This year's video features flight deck operations (at day and night), low-level flying through some scenic canyons (including the famous Jedi Transition), live firing of the gun, bombs and A/A missiles, the view through night-vision goggles (NVG), and even some targeting pod footage from F/A-18s operating against ISIS in Iraq and Syria.

While these videos have always been great to watch, it feels like the production value and video quality has gone way up this year, so great job to LT Joseph “C-Rock” Stephens and all those responsible for these glimpses into naval aviation!
