I miss the F-14. Hell of a workhorse
One of the all time greatest fighters ever.
Man I loved seeing the tomcat, by far my favorite aircraft with the Harrier jump-jet coming in a close second . I got to sit in one when I was a kid visiting my sister in new mexico. Shout out to the piolet cause he could have got in a lot of trouble for that.
Hey required a lot of maintenance to keep flying
Harrier was cool not gonna lie. Though for me personally the only thing I liked more than the F-14 was the A10

Kinda scary seeing an attack fighter over an American city!
+David Reiss Why is that scary? there are plenty of cities with Air Force bases in the middle of them. When I was in Savannah they had Hunter Army Airfield where F16s would on occasion land (mostly it was C130s though) and to land there you would have to fly over the city and people's houses
Hi John. Yea, I know what you mean about the bases. I served in the Army for awhile. It's one thing to be looking up at a plane, but another to see from the sky looking down. The city looks so vulnerable, knowing the damage they can create.
Ghost Rider, the pattern is full. Negative on the fly by.
+David Reiss Dearbornistan practice run.
