Delivering the Groceries

Today's installment of 'TWW' features one of our favorites... the Grumman F-14 Tomcat.

In this photo we see 'Gypsy 111', an F-14A of VF-32 Swordsmen passing over the USS Theodore Roosevelt during an UNREP... an underway replenishment. During an UNREP fuel, munitions, food, etc. are transferred to the carrier to keep the ship at sea for extended periods of time... basically, when they need to 'go shopping', the supermarket comes to them.

Anyhoo, we kinda thought this was a cool shot... enjoy...
