US Navy Fighter Squadron 154 (VF-154) Black Knights was the new designation given to VF-837 on February 4th, 1953. The squadron transitioned from the F9F Panther through the FJ-3 Fury, F-8 Crusader and F-4 Phantom II before upgrading to the F-14 Tomcat in October, 1983. The Black Knights deployed many times with the F-14 on various Nimitz class carriers. The squadron's final cruise with the F-14 took place in 2003 aboard the USS Kitty Hawk. Upon return, VF-154 was redesignated VFA-154 and transitioned to the F/A-18F Super Hornet.

Grumman F-14A 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.
