          Amazing sight.....would have loved to have been one of those photographers! She was an amazing aircraft....too bad she had to be retired.

          I'm still keeping my fingers crossed that one will eventually end up in a heritage flight

            It was amazing...I got to see the fly-by live at work along with the F-14 civilian contractors and the rest of our guys and gals in my command.

                Hey I havent seen this one before. Thanks for sharing.

                It truly gives me a sad emotional feeling to see these cats go.

                Great line up of the photographers.

                Here's the shots from that day.

                    ^^Dedicated or not, we've always wanted to be a tomcat pilot or any pilot for instance. Although I'll never be a pilot, For g-ds sakes, Im in the F&B business, haha but since my aviation enthusiasm is big that falling in love with these beautiful cats is not that hard..

                    They will be missed. Saluté !
