The F-14 was first deployed in 1974 and retired in 2006 when the new F/A-18E and F joined the fleet. The first of two Oceana squadrons to accept the F-14 was VF-101 in June 1976. This is the year VF-101 began to operate and instruct crews and other personnel on the F-14. F-14B BuNo 162923 joined VF-101 and became the C/Os aircraft. He had the aircraft painted with bright red markings and other crews named it "Tomato" and appeared in many air shows to display the aircraft capabilities.

Grumman F-14B 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.
