Wolfpack Cat

We've said it before, we say it again... we love our Tomcats around here... and we love 'purty paint-jobs, too. So, for today's quickie here on TWW, here's a look at one of the most 'purty paint jobs to grace the beautiful lines of the most badass jet fighter to ever fly in the sky...

F-14A BuNo. 159000, 'Wichita 14' of VF-1 'Wolfpack', seen at NAS Miramar in 1974-75.

Photographer and Source unknown

This jet was among the original complement of Tomcats delivered to VF-1 and sister squadron, VF-2 'Bounty Hunters', which were the first operational FITRONs to equip and deploy with the F-14. Their first cruise was as part of CVW-14 (Carrier Air Wing 14) aboard the U.S.S. Enterprise in September of 1974.

More Tomcats to come!

Fade to Black...
