VF-213 "Black Lions" was established in 1955 flying the F2H-3 Banshee and eventually the F-14A in September 1976 and the F-14D in 1997. In September 2005 the USS Theodore Roosevelt "The Big Stick" sailed with VF-213 and several other units to take part in "Operation Iraqi Freedom" and "Operation Enduring Freedom". By mid February 2006 the carrier had entered the Mediterranean on her way home. Returning home in 2006, they began the conversion to the F/A-18F Super Hornet. F-14D 164347 was produced in 1991 and sent to AMARC in 2006.

Grumman F-14D Tomcat

Designed to carry the formidable long range AIM-54 Phoenix missile, the Grumman F-14 Tomcat was first flown on December 21st, 1970. Made famous by the Hollywood film Top Gun, the F-14 replaced the F-4 Phantom II as the US Navy's primary maritime air superiority fighter. Its design includes a variable geometry wing that can sweep back for high speed supersonic intercepts and forward for improved positioning in air to air dogfights. Nicknamed "Bombcat," the F-14 spent much of its late career in an air-to-ground role, carrying the Low Altitude Navigation and Targeting Infrared for Night (LANTIRN) system.
