On March 15, 1980 the USS Carl Vinson was launched and commissioned in 1982. The ship was named after Senator Carl Vinson considered the father of the modern US Navy. The honor of christening the ship was given to the Navy nurse who had been a long time nurse/aide to the Senator and his wife. Molly Snead AKA "Miss Molly" was also honored when a C-1A transport was named after her. In 1989 the C-1A retired and the name and nose art were given to VF-111 F-14A 161621.

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.
