    As close as you can get - and still tell about it.

    Even though the title claims this an F/A 18 Hornet..the F18 has twin tail configuration, doesn't look like an F16 either.... I would be more inclined to call it a Harrier flyover.....but then again I'm getting [s]better[/s] older, so maybe the "experts" out there will know better than me.

    It is not an F-18.

    It is a French Mirage.

    Either the F-1 or the Dassault Mirage 2000.

    Besides, that is not an American uniform at all.

    Thanks Ultra, I knew there would be someone out there with the proper knowledge.
    I still love it about any fighter that you can see him a long time before you can hear him.
    If you are one of the "bad guys" if you can hear him it's TOO LATE!

    I knew it was a Mirage.
    I went to read the comments and others confirmed it.

    I also left a comment.

    That's a little too close...I'd rather have William Tell shoot an apple off my head. And somehow I don't think that helmet would help him much.
