Personal knowledge (I saw/touched A/C at NAS North Island after it was transported there after the crash). http://www.djibnet.com/photo/buno+162435/f-a-18-hornet-crash-8126348289.html http://www.djibnet.com/photo/mcdonnell+douglas+f/a-18/f-a-18-hornet-crash-8126348291.html http://www.hmdb.org/Marker.asp?Marker=19137
(Their website says that the A/C was part of a Marine Reserve squadron from Atlanta, so not sure how that info comports with the fact that this A/C appears to have been written off. Weird.)
