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.
Grumman F-14A-85-GR was built as BuNo. 159610 AC-215 c/n 157/DR2. On January 4, 1989
while assigned to VF-32 “Swordsmen” as AC207 onboard the USS John F. Kennedy this F-14A
along with its sister F-14A 159437 AC202 destroyed two Libyan MiG-23’s. The MiG’s normally
retreated when detected but these two continued their attack. AC202 and AC207 fired AIM-7
missiles, AC202’s missile missed while AC207’s missile destroyed his target. AC202 re-engaged
and was successful. Both MiG pilots ejected safely. 159610 is located at the National Air and
Space Museum as VF-31 NK105.
