Operational Overview
The Jolly Rogers. The name fairly shouts US Naval fighter aviation. From its formation as VF-17, the first Navy squadron to take the F4U Corsair into combat, through its present day incarnation as VFA-103 flying the F/A-18F Hornet, the Jolly Rogers has been a constant presence in the front line of Navy air. This campaign celebrates that lineage. Squadrons that have carried the Jolly Rogers name and skull and crossbones insignia include:

VF-17 1943-46
VF-5B 1946-48
VF-61 1948-59
VF-84 1960-95
VF/VFA-103 1995-present

They’ve flown the cream of Navy front line fighters:
F4U
F6F
F8F
F9F
FJ-3
F3H
F8U/F-8
F-4
F-14
F/A-18
