CF-188 Hornet painted to commemorate Canada’s 150th anniversary of Confederation. The specially-painted CF-18 Hornet features the official logo for "Canada 150" placed throughout the design. The logo is composed of a series of diamonds, arranged in the shape of the iconic maple leaf. The four diamonds at the base represent the four original provinces that formed Confederation in 1867: Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. Additional diamonds extend out from the base to create nine more points. Together, they symbolize Canada’s 13 provinces and territories. On the left wing, the timespan of Confederation is shown with the year of Confederation, 1867, and the 150th anniversary year – 2017. The right wing bears the official name of the celebration – "Canada 150".
The multi-role CF-188 (CF-18 as it is commonly known) is a versatile and combat- proven fighter aircraft. Able to carry a multitude of weapons in various configurations, the Hornet can engage both ground and aerial targets on the same mission. Its twin engines generate 32 000 pounds of thrust, and the Hornet is capable of supersonic flight and operating day or night in all weather conditions. As the Royal Canadian Air Force’s frontline multi-role fighter, the modernized CF-18 is used for air defense, air superiority, tactical support, training, aerobatic demonstration and aerospace testing and evaluation.
