Death Rattlers VMFA-323

Death Rattlers (VMFA-323) based out of MCAS Miramar, CA flies the F/A-18C and some A+ came visit us in Ft worth couple of times. This Units started back in 1943 flying F-4U corsairs against the Japanese in WW2. They also flies the F-9 Panther, F-8 Crusader, F-4 Phantom II and finally got to the current F/A-18 Hornet. We were fortunate to catch them staying the night and launching off. The Commander color bird also came in with the pack of 8 Legacy Hornets.
