Each year the demo Hornet unveils a distinct new design that reflects the theme of that particular year. The 2015 design commemorates the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Britain, which was a significant turning point in the Second World War and the first conflict in history to be won by air power alone. The Demonstration Hornet represents the RCAF's frontline multi-role fighter. The modernized CF-18s are used for air defence, air superiority, tactical support, training, aerobatic demonstration, and aerospace testing and evaluation.
This Collectible Coin captures the essence of this year's theme and the power of this aircraft.
