The CF-18 Hornet (CF-18) is a Canadian Forces aircraft, based on the American F/A-18 Hornet.

It was manufactured in St. Louis, Missouri, USA by the McDonnell Douglas military aerospace company, who in 1997 merged with Boeing. Going back further, the F-18 originated as the Northrop YF-17 “Cobra”. The YF-17 was pitted against the General Dynamics YF-16 Fighting Falcon in a competition to supply the USAF with its next generation of lightweight combat aircraft. In 1975, the USAF selected the YF-16. However, YF-17 showed such promise the US Department of Defense directed the US Navy to base its own next generation program to replace the F-4 Phantom II and A-7 Corsair II on the YF-17. Several changes were made to the aircraft and the F-18A was born.

The term CF-18 is actually a misnomer. The planes are technically designated CF-188 (the name Hornet not being used as there is no officially recognized French Canadian translation). However, in every context except the most official of military documents, the planes are referred to as CF-18 Hornets.
