Miss seeing the F-14 at airshows.
Awesome paint job! I'd love to see this plane at the Miramar Air Show in a couple of months. Thanks for sharing!
Pound for pound, still one of my favs
F14 was retired from Navy and replaced by F/A 18e whose replacement is suppose to be the F35 ugh!
You can be my wingman anytime.
I wonder if the rabbit head logo is reversed so it can face forward on both sides of the plane. The official trademark faces left.
Still operational in Iranian Air Force. Beautiful bird to look, awesome in battle
+Farshad Khoshnoud Wow, really??
+Farshad Khoshnoud Didn't Iran run out of spare parts for their F-14 s? I thought they kept their last few planes operational by cannibalizing parts until there was nothing left.
is that a playboy on the tail fin. oh yeah
+Danny Quizon They NEED TO find spare parts for their fighters, not only F-14, but F-5s and F-4s (that the latter carries a major role in the air force) to keep them operational. No, they are not cannibalising, and I am have to tell that they are in pretty good shape
My all-time favorite….Tom Cat.
+Farshad Khoshnoud they make their own spare parts.
+Delon Thompson they do. I spent my military service in the Iranian air force and I know it that they do. Well, not sure if they are as good as those made by the mother company, Grumman And yes, amazing bird, I can feel you when you said Tomcats are your all time favourite.
May nhìn cái con cac gì mày.lo bay đi
Hey if it isn't my old buddy Vanity 1 from the VX4 Evaluators, did alot of maintenance on this old beast during the years, still one of my favorite aircrafts of alltimes. Was an Aviation Structural Mechanic in this squadron from 83-86.
My favorite of all the Tomcats.
+Danny Quizon their Tomcats are using Flanker engines as well.
+Reo Cruz Flanker engines? Isn't that like putting a square peg into a round hole? Just wondering😔
Dunno how they did it, but I remember reading an article back when they "upgraded" their Tomcats with the new camouflage and ability to carry the Hawk SAM as an air to ground missile.
+Reo Cruz that was a project they carried out back in 1997 or so I think. Hawk SAM missiles were under the fuselage. I am not sure if the project is still operational
