This is a set of VFA-146 "Blue Diamonds" textures for the FSX VRS F/A-18E Super Hornet (V1.4 only). They are based on an aircraft I photographed at Riverside in March 2012. Although the Blue Diamonds currently fly the F/A-18C Hornet they are scheduled to transition to the E model in the future. This repaint is freeware, however, please do not upload this repaint anywhere without my permission. Strike Fighter Squadron 146 (VFA-146) also known as the "Blue Diamonds" is a United States Navy an operational fleet strike fighter squadron based at Naval Air Station Lemoore California. Thanks to fbk289 for the use of his repaint kit. By Nathan Havercroft.
