Grumman F-14A Tomcat   10.25"   10.75"

In 2001 VF-41 "Black Aces" made their final F-14 carrier deployment in 2001 before transitioning to the F/A-18E. To mark this occasion each aircraft aircraft had "Last Tomcat Cruise 1976-2001" printed on the vertical stabilizers, "First to Strike" on the port side leading edge and "First to Fight" on the starboard leading edge. A Maintenance Master Chief had named each aircraft after eleven of his girlfriends so it was decided to paint a name on the starboard side of each aircraft's radome. The CAG's aircraft BuNo 162608 received "Anna".

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.
