Grumman F-14A Tomcat
161621, VF-154, USS Kitty Hawk, 1999
The Grumman F-14 Tomcat is a twin-engine, variable sweep wings capable of supersonic flight.
The aircraft is crewed by a Pilot and a Radar Intercept Officer who share the tasks of navigation,
target acquisition, ECM and weapons usage. The Tomcat was operated by the United States
Navy and the Islamic Republic of Iran Air Force only. The name "Tomcat" is said to come from the
call-sign used by Vice Admiral Thomas Connolly which conformed to the USN tradition of giving
Grumman aircraft feline names.
F-14A 161621 was delivered to VF-21 in 1984 and served with VF-111, VF-213, VF-124 and VF-
154 "Black Knights". In 1989 while with VF-111 the aircraft was given the nose art "Miss Molly".
