Grumman F-14A Tomcat

@ Pacific Coast Air Museum, Santa Rosa, CA

July 2012

One cool aspect of the Museum’s Tomcat is that it was flown in from NAS Point Mugu, California and then de-militarized onsite.  First flown in 1970, these movie-star aircraft served in the US Navy until retirement in 2006.  With over 700 produced, an estimated 28 are still in service with the Islamic Republic of Iran Air Force.  Nikon D7000 w/18-200 mm, processed with Aperture.
