Some Great F-14 reading.


Recommended Posts

Just while I was browsing the net for F-14 related stuff - I can’t think why! ;) - I found these articles. I found them an excellent read and very enlightening to some of the F-14s handling characteristics, as well as just life on the boat :)

I’m extrmemely proud that my father is one of the British Omani Hunter Pilots he mentioned flying very low in part two. My dad has mentioned how he had a lot of fun doing practice combat against F-14s from the USN during that exact time period and then finding a article written by one of those F-14 Pilots has blown my mind :D
