FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The University of Arkansas will welcome four FA-18F Super Hornets from Strike Fighter Squadron 11 for a pregame flyover Saturday at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium before the Razorbacks’ showdown with former Southwest Conference rival and No. 23-ranked TCU.
The flyover is scheduled to take place immediately following the national anthem just prior to the 2:30 p.m. CT kickoff.
Strike Fighter Squadron 11 is a United States Navy strike fighter squadron stationed at Naval Air Station Oceana, Virginia. Nicknamed “Red Rippers,” the squadron was established in 1950 and deploys on board the USS HARRY S. TRUMAN (CVN-75) as part of Carrier Air Wing ONE.
The F/A-18F Super Hornet serves as a modern long-range, multi-mission, all-weather strike fighter that is fully capable to conduct both air-to-air and air-to-ground combat missions. Its primary missions are close air support, suppression of enemy air defenses (SEAD), reconnaissance, forward air control and refueling.
