GRUMMAN F-14 TOMCAT

Post by r.e.hendriks »

Hi all,

I've seen several aircraft-topics so far. But as far as I remember I haven't seen a photo topic on
the mighty GRUMMAN F-14 TOMCAT the most beautiful aircraft ever build.

I was asked by a moderator of a Tomcat forum to post some shots there, so I digitalized some old
slides and processed a lot of digital shots taken during a visit to the USA in 2005.

I will first post some old shots...then some new shots...and then it's up to you guys!!!
Show them!!!

I agree Rob, most beautiful fighter ever build. But hey, we agree on that ever since we were neighbours back in the 70's and 80's. I only have 2 to share so far:

No tomcat topic is complete without a carrier, I've never been on a moving one so this is the best I can do

I've never saw this wonderful bird fly, makes this a great topic.

Best I can do as a contribution is the F-14D I shot at the National Air & Space Museum at Dulles (which has been posted on this board before):
