The F-18 Hornet is used primarily as a safety chase and mission support aircraft at NASA's Dryden Flight Research Center, Edwards, California. The formal designation of the aircraft is F/A-18, corresponding to the dual fighter-attack role of the Hornets in the U.S. Navy and U.S. Marine Corps.

The aircraft were obtained from the U.S. Navy between 1984 and 1991. As support aircraft, the F-18's are used for safety chase, pilot proficiency, aerial photography and other mission support functions.
