Hornet Daily Trivia

It's fleet nickname is Rhino.

The FCS of the Super Hornet selectively modes a rudder toe-in for takeoff and landing. With high AoA at slower speeds, the wing blocks flow over the stabilators affecting their nose authority. The rudders automatically bias to the inside and create downforce, which pitches the nose up.
