Grumman F-14D Block 170, 164342 C/N 617/D-22 was delivered to the USN in August 1991. From September 1, 2005 until March 10, 2006 it served with VF-31 onboard the USS Theodore Roosevelt for what would be the F-14's final cruise. During this time period 164342 was the CAG aircraft and made its 1,000th arrested landing. When VF-31 returned to NAS Oceana they traded their F-14s for F-18s. On September 28, 2006 F-14D 614342 was Struck Off Charge (SOC) and one week latter delivered to the Wings Over Miami Museum.

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.
