Hello devote Tomcat finatics; I must tell you the pride that fills my heart to see the son of one of the greatest mentors on our planet; usher in a new era for VF-143. I speak of Steve"WEB"Koehler current C.O. of now VFA-143 In the early '80's while still matureing. Steve's Father Tom "Joker"Koehler(C.O. VF-161) took me under his wing and introduced me to this addicting habit of Naval Aviation. As hard as I tried, I did not make the cut to NO ONE's fault but my own. Steve, however, who I last saw at my Mother's funeral in 1983, just didn't seem to want to go the Blue Water Ops way. I was soooooo wrong and now Steve has not only achieve all that I dreamed of; and more,but ushers in a new era for his unit as his Father did before him. I send my love, prayers and thanks to Steve"Web" Koehler, for fulfilling the honor for which I could not muster; and for raising the family worthy of defending the honor and freedom that many of us take for granted. I haven't seen you since Janurary of 1983, bt Steve my spirit is with you; my thanks goes with you everytime you blast off the bow; thank you for doing what I had not the strength to do. With all my honor as a free man; Matthew Sherwood

I just want to say this is one of the best, if not the best, website to find info on the F-14. I also want to add that the F/A-18E/F Super Hornet is really just a result of Boeing having some politicos in their pocket. If it cant even out perform the original Hornet, how could it even match up to the Tomcat, the greatest Navy fighter ever. Period.

I went thru all the airframes, hydraulics,corrosion control, flap/slat rigging, machine gun classes...any airframer knows what I am refering to..after 3-4 months of Namtradet... I reproted to VF-24 Fighting Renegades in Hanger 4.

Though I stumbled upon your site some years ago, I never had an inclination to write. However, it seems a quick note of Thanks is appropriate. After being trained as an AQ (Fire Control/Radar) on the F-14 in the Navy, followed by a 4 year Naval Career at VF-51, I was honorably discharged as an AQ2. Immediately went to work for Grumman, also at NAS Miramar, installing a variety of modifications beginning with the Television Camera System (TCS) mods. Though it has been many years since I swapped a box (so many 710's) or an antenna, I still get heart palpitations just thinking about this beautiful bird. Many Thanks for an excellent site. Considering the fact you never even worked with the F-14, it is amazing that you have authored a site with such obvious love and admiration for this most excellent bird. Those of us who had long, personal relationships with the F-14 are definitely indebted to you for your thorough research and countless hours of hard work in creating your site. I certainly hope you realize how much we all appreciate your dedication. Again, Many Thanks!!! Malcolm Dickson

hi torsten! great website! i first ran into your website in 1997, and it's been a part of my life since. may you never take down your website. i got into the F-14 Tomcat when I was 5 when i watched Top Gun. The star of Top Gun was Grumman's plane not Tom Cruise, as i'm sure you'll agree. when i was 14, i moved to the USA and my interest in military aircraft was re-shaped, particularly for US Navy aircraft. to start on my interest, i visited the CV-11 USS Intrepid museum. as i'm sure you are aware by now, that is the final resting place of the famous F-14B Prototype. other cool USN aircraft on the CV-11 are the Douglas A-4 Skyhawk, North American A-5 Vigilante, the Grumman A-6 Intruder prototype (or one of), the Grumman YA-6F Intruder II Prototype, the LTV A-7 Corsair II, Chance Vought F-8 Crusader, a Lockheed SR-71 Black Bird, a McDonnell F-4 Phantom II, Grumman F-11 Tiger, McDonnel F-3 Demon and i think that's about it. summer of that year before i started school, we visited Tomcat Alley itself, NAS Oceana in Virginia Beach Virginia. It was a blast. First, while i was walking around the beach, i saw an F-14 flying high in the sky, i couldn't believe myself. later on, we found out there was a bus tour to go inside the NAS although you could not step out of the bus. fair enough, i got some good photos of VF-31, VF-32, VF-143 and VF-213 F-14s. I just wish i was able to get a photo of a VF-2 F-14 but i guess i was pushing my luck. there was just too many to take photos of all of them, but the best F-14 there was the CAG of VF-31. NAS Oceana also has a cool museum park. There you can see a very weird F-14. it's an F-14 with both VF-11 and VF-143 markings. i don't know if they've changed it since but i have a lot of cool shots of it. also in the park is a McDonnel Douglas F/A-18 Hornet, an A-6E Intruder (T.R.A.M.), a Grumman F-9 Panther, a Douglas F4D Skyray, a F-4 Phantom II in VF-102 markings, and an F-8 Crusader in VF-101 fictitious markings. i don't remember if there was a McDonnel F2H Banshee. it was truly a great way to end summer before i started high school. i have several books on the F-14, but i doubt that they are as many as yours. if it's ok, could you tell me if a book called Tomcat Alley is still in print? that was the last one i've been meaning to get. my favorite book is the Shipbourne Superfighter hardcover one published by World Airpower Journal. i also have some out of print ones like F-14 Tomcat in Action published by Squadron/Signal, but honestly, i don't even remember how i got it. haha. christmas of that same year, i was able to go back to NAS Oceana but this time the experience was different. this time the bus tours were out of season, but i got something good out of it anyway. i met an F-14 Pilot in person. i don't remember his rank but i think he was a Lt., his name was Rick LaBranche, callsign Twig. you may have seen him in the Discovery Channel special "Carrier: Fortress at Sea", when he was one of the last men to take the A-6 Intruder to its final cruise. Twig was true to his word in the film when he said he would be transitioning to the F-14D. he showed me around the hangar and i saw an F-14 B or was it a D being serviced. unfortunately, due to wartime restrictions he could only give us 5 minutes of his time but it was cool. well i just wanted to share my F-14 story with you. it's really a shame what the US Navy has done to the F-14, butchering the F-14D and all. well, see you later.

I'd like to get some prints of VF 32 from 1974 especially of AC-202. The pilot is my cousin and is now flying for Delta out of Atlanta GA USA. I'd like to buy some of the larger prints so that I can send them to him for signature and framing for my game room. I have the last 6 minutes of the episode on a .wav file I'd be willing to share with you if you are intrested. Can you please send me or direct me to prints to choose from for LT Herman Cook if any - Call Sign Muenster

Great website! Thanks for your work! I was the pilot of 161157 on April 24, 1981 at NAS Oceana when my right engine compressor stalled at rotation during t/o and we lost that beautiful jet. It had only about 210 total flt hrs on it. Virtually a new aircraft. My RIO was LCDR Robert "Bobo" Kimmel. I noted that the squadron listed is VF-32. Actually, that was a VF-101 aircraft. The flight was supposed to be a 2 v 2 air combat manuvering training flight with a couple of F-15's from Langley up the coast. If you would like more of the details, let me know. I'd be glad to contribute what I can to your terrific site. "Rammer" Phillips VF-31 (1979-1982)

The F-14As and AIM-54 Phoenix are gone for good as of last September 2004, but the remaining B- and D-model Tomcats will serve with the Tomcat squadrons on the East Coast until 2006. Tomcat operations on the West Coast are over... They've transitioned to the Super Hornet or deactivated Tomcat squadrons. The retirement was moved up from 2010 to save money on maintenance costs. The Navy will be very hard-pressed to scrounge medium-range attack capability out of its remaining strike fighter assets until the F-35C becomes operational in 2012-2014...

It brought tears to my eyes to learn they have since gone on to another line of work. Thank you for your dedication to the finest aircraft ever produced (wink wink). Keep up the excellent work!! P.S.

Great site, I was a vf1 plane captain at Miramar and in Desert storm on the Ranger.Have many hair raising stories about tomcats and never even got off the deck.When a tomcat is backed up with its rear end hanging well over the edge of the ship, the dew-hydraulic fluid slime,is a very scary funnel slide right to the ocean 98 feet below. never fell myself but was well aware .

Enjoyed your website as I served with the Swordsmen 1974-78. Need to point out the fact that there is no way that they could have celebrated 10 years of accident-free operation in 1979. Lew Kosich and I lost an aircraft over the side during the N. Atlantic cruise on 14 September 1976 after run-away throttles prior to catapult hook up. We both ejected and subsequently landed back on deck after a wild ejection ride. Shipboard video of the accident has been featured on an A&E Wings segment entitled “Top Gun,” and I understand it was for a time used in ejection training videos as part of annual requal. Good job on the site. Les Seymour

It has been said that there is a need for a more modern replacement for the USAF A-10s. I believe with a major "rework" of the F-14 by up grade of engines & possible vectored thrust, increasing wing area with modified outboard wings, addition of "fast-packs" to increase fuel capacity & place ment of either Gau-8 30mm gatlin or a "Bushmaster-chain gun" housed in an underbelly bulge faring area between the engines simular to fast-pack configuration, Use of composite-Kevlar & lightweight titanium armored panels & "skin" to upgrade ballistic protection, placement of a ballistic point defence at the center/rear between engine exaust simular to the old army "Claymore" mine system firing steel ball projectiles rearward as a last chance point defence against incoming missles along with regular chaff & flares,and last but not least appropiate avionics & weapons hard-points & weapons systems & electronics upgrades. You might say that it would be cheaper to build such an aircraft from scratch. But since the basic air frame of the F-14 is an already proven superb military aircraft, with plenty of room to incorperate the changes wanted, WHY NOT BUILD THEM ? ? ? The advantages to such an aircraft are plain to see! For example: swing wing design alowing for low speed & loiter performance and high speed supersonic performance, increased feul capacity for longer range & loiter time, improved carrier operation capability with thrust vectoring, FASTER responce time to target from loiter, vastly improved performance capacity & survivablity over current ground attack aircraft from air to air attack, and increased crew & aircraft protection systems survivabilty equal to & way beyond the current A-10s in USAF use. Please let me Know what you think GOD BLESS AMERICA! Sam T. Mullins

Happy Christmas and New Year's to everybody! Latest word that I read on the Tomcat is that all the A-models have been retired as of this past September 2004... The AIM-54 missile has also been retired and is no longer employed on any Tomcats remaining in service. (Yeah, the last cruise of the F-14A and Phoenix were announced on the site before, but the September date is very official. None of the Tomcats the public saw in "The Final Countdown" and "Top Gun" are left in service.) Since the AIM-120 was never incorporated into frontline Tomcats, the longest range missile now available to the F-14B/D is the latest model of the AIM-7 Sparrow. There are approximately 80 B and D models still left in service. As of about a year ago, there's supposedly no more testing being done with the type and the NF-14Ds have been retired to the boneyard (Davis-Monthan Air Force Base in Arizona) or are on their way to bases or museums as gateguards along with the F-14As, Bs, and Ds already retired... Supposedly, the retirement date of the remaining Tomcat models (B/Ds) has also been pushed up to late 2005 according to a British military aviation magazine. (It might have been Air Forces International.) Apparently, the bean counters in the USN are anxious to retire the type as soon as possible. No question that nobody that likes the plane wants to see it go, but the facts are that the airframes are getting older, are increasingly harder to maintain without new F-14 airframes being produced, and it's not guaranteed that the oldest airframes (15-years-plus) will continue to hold up well. There were probably a few years back with a critical bolt breaking in the landing gear and the flight control systems failing in several Tomcats causing several planes to be lost. Remember that every piece of military equipment in the US arsenal has been pushed especially hard since the 1990s and retirement dates are coming up faster for a lot of aircraft types besides the older Tomcats. Newer aircraft types like the JSF and F-22 can't come online soon enough because a lot of the older F-16s, F-18s, and the remaining stocks of F-14s and F-15s are literally wearing out or falling apart. For example, the bulk of the F-16s in Air Force service have accumulated over 5000 hours flying time apiece(!) and the Air Force is facing the prospects of reducing its air wings further OR structurally strengthening the fatigued airframes to keep them in service longer... Not an inexpensive proposition.

all i can say is WOW. this site brings back memories. i was stationed at nas oceana from 81 to 83 and onboard the uss nimitz from 83 to 85. i worked in A.I.M.D. i performed c.e.r. and hot section inspections on the tf30 p414a engines. and to this day i still know every nut, bolt and wire on that engine . i also worked in the test cell where they test our work and have seen things that would blow your mind. at zone 5 full after burner the tomcat engine turns 20,000 gallons of baffle cooling water into pure steam which can be seen for miles and god forbid if your standing anywhere near the J.B.D's (jet blast deflectors) during highpower cuz it will rattle your eyeballs out of your head , numb your face and itch every nose hair till you cant stand it anymore . AAHhh. i miss the good ole days. brings a tear to my eye. also did you know that when testing the tf30 off the fantail of the nimitz the ship speed would increase an incriment of 1 knot. and talk about air shows. youll never see fighters perform over land like they do over water. this is a great website and ill be sure to pass it along.

F-18 is good at hollywood movie only, such as ID4 movie, for its futuristic shape but F-14 is the best ever fighter. I dont think your F-18 could win againts SU-27, not to mention SU-30. See how your Maverick works. The F-14 is even still better than The Eagle. The Cat was to fight sea-air-land but The Eagle has been enough only from land - air - land. To sum up To kill this Cat it takes one SU-27, EFA and Rafale to work together in the air. So let this Cat stand on deck again. Wake up guys. Where have all of you been?

Really great stuff. I am a Navy vet that used to watch hours & sometimes days of plane guard for our U.S. aircraft carriers in the Pacific & South China sea areas. The F14 Tomcat is probably the best Fighter Aircraft in the world and it is a shame to have my goverment retire such a suberb aircraft. My hope is that they will realize their mistake before it is too late. I have spoken with many Navy pilots and they have told me that they would fly the F 14 ANYWHERE, ANYTIME. AMEN

I took in an F14D demo flight at a local airshow recently, with the types imminent retirement, it's probably the last time I get to see it. I'm going to miss that big honkingly powerfull, fast jet. It turns on a dime, accellerates like stink, and dives like a sledge hammer welded to sewer cover. As I felt the power in my chest durring the final roaring fly past, I stuggled to keep the F14 in sight as it climbed, fighting to hold back the tears welling up in my eyes. The Navy, Pentagon and DOD in my estimation caved to politics, sold out, lock stock and barrel, and turned their backs on the best interests of the service and the countries defence, when they made the huge mistake of selecting the inherently inferior F18 platform for further development, in favour of more advanced versions of the F14. And so here we are, and maybe next year I can look forward to seeing an F18E/F, with the with all it's touted "capability" and areodynamic performance that has more in common with a 30 year old A7, or A4, than the mighty F14D or any F15s. I'll miss both them terribly, when they go, as well, with nothing else realisticaly (the Raptor appears to be still born on arrival and probably rightly so) on the horizon to replace either type. God Bless you guys, keep the faith, F14s forever, baby ! We shall never forget. MaX

I was in VF-142 as they transitioned from F-4's to F-14's. I was one of the very first "Plane Captains" (crew chief) on the F-14 and worked with VF-124 in training with the crews from VF1, VF2, VF14, VF 32, VF-142, & VF-143 - in that order. Inbetween when VF-142 and VF-143 transitioned to Ocean NAS from Miramar NAS I worked with both squadrons aircraft in retrofit with Grumman at PT. Mugu NAS, Spring of 1975. I was one of the 2 "Plane Captains" with an aircraft on alert in early 1976 when I launched my aircraft to intercept the first "Bear" bombers and have pictures to show them intercepting our carrier with the F-14's in escort . . . The aircraft you show in your pictures with the early paint design is mine: #212 - my name was the very first one on it . . . Terry Lascelles

I'm now 44-yrs old. But at the young whippersnapper age of 22, I was a part of VF-84 & sailing aboard the USS Nimitz. Worked in the AIMD (IM3) Department on Avionics gear from F-14's, A-6's, E-2C's and EA6-B's. It's truly a chapter of my young life that will forever stay with me. Long live the "Skull and Crossbones" of the Jolly Rogers! (Now VF-103, I understand)JP Wenzler, "Pills", Holingworth (VA-35), Ray Hart, Eric Mattice, "Pops", or anyone from the 1978-1981 Nimitz/NAS Oceana era.... Please drop me a line!

I started a small website with airshow pictures on it, its still under construction. All the pictures that you will find on my website are "home made". Keep up the good work.

I server aboard the USS Saratoga CV-60 from'84-'87. Getting aboard my first carrier was an exciting time for me. Leaving port for a cruise only meant one thing... when are the jets coming. A few days later they would have the flight deck ready and over the course of a day or so, the deck would be filled with it's compliment of aircraft. Trying to keep my work schedule in the main machinery spaces and spending many hours on "vultures row" was hard because I watched these majestic pieces of machinery launch and arrest for as long as I could. Words couldn't explain the feeling of seeing this activity, but I lived it for over two years and it never got boring!! Those were the days and I'd never want them replaced in my lifetime.

Torsten, nice job with this site. Brings back lots of memories. Former AD2 with VF-213 Blacklions powerplants shop from '76 to '79 (during and after the transition from F-4s to F-14s). Most of our F-14 A/C were brand-spanking-new-from-the-factory Block 90s. Was involved with the engine upgrades from the TF30-P412 to the TF30-P414 and the upgrade from the F-14 to the F-14A. Between 76Sep and 77Nov/Dec p/p removed and replaced or removed and reinstalled engines over 100 times in our twelve squadron A/C due to upgrades and factory directives. We were thinking of having a patch made in the PI* on the '77-'78 Westpac on USS Kitty Hawk but never did. Was briefly the p/p Nx super before I got out in '79 during the Med cruise on USS America. Saddens me that the Navy is phasing out the F-14. Great A/C. (*that's Philippine Islands for you non-Navy F-14 fans or those Navy too young to have ever had the experience of visiting Subic Bay)

I am presently the Maintenance Master Chief assigned to the Blacklions. As I was looking at some photo's of my squadrons jet's, I noticed one picture that upset me quite a bit. It was the one with one of our pilots floating in the ocean after a mishap. This picture, in my opinion, should not be shown on your website as this pilot could have sustained major injury. Im also sure that that persons family would not have wanted to see that pic as well. I think it shows bad taste and poor judgement on your part to show something like this.

I have been in the past (since1970)and will always be a F-14 Tomcat fan. No fighter no mater what they have to offer will ever out run out turn or out perform the F-14! Period. I have been associated with the F-14 tomcat for 18 years of my Naval Service. A well maintained tomcat in the hands of a skilled, experienced pilot, will always come home when others will not.

Dear Sir, My father was in the navy for 20 years and you could say that I'm proud to be a "Navy Brat". I'm also a freelance artist and I've got a few logos that relate to the subject of Tomcat Squadrons. If you are interested I'd love to share a few of them with you. View them, tell me what you think and feel free to use them on your web page. Just get back to me if you're interested. Thank You, Nick Francis

I see that VF 102 has not gotten the honor of of being the first F4 outfit to the med. I was a Phamtom Fixer in the squadron when we beat VF 74 on operations during the cruise in 1962 aboard the Uss enterprise. we got there almost 24 hours ahead of the Uss Forestal

Enjoyed reading the history of VF21.I have often wondered about its existence to only find out now that it has been disbanded.I was a plane captain on the 64 &65 cruises to the Wespac aboard the Midway. I tell my wife those were the most exciting times of my life, to which I usually recieve a off color comment. I enjoyed your site.
