Would I be allowed to purchase an f-18 Hornet from Boeing that has no weapons systems and is completely disarmed. The aircraft would only be used for recreational flying. The aircraft could be very similar to the Blue Angels F-18's that have no weapons and are disarmed.

Would this be legally possible? Serious answers please. Thanks!!
Update: It would be flown far away from highly populated areas.
