    Seeing this could indeed be a succesful, if this was to be real, it will be nice to see the Tomcats rule the skies again, atleast in a little bit higher orbit.

    Hail to the Cats to be re-born from the planeyard !

    yeah, I think it would work, but I'm not sure if the costs to retro fit some F-14s would make it worthwhile.

    Well, other fighter jets have been rebuilt to be drones in their afterlive, and other stuff, so I could very well imagine this working out. Operational success, yes; financial success, would remain to be seen.

    It is possible, remember that L1011 or DC-10 that has been converted as a Low Cost Satellite launcher?

    Are F-14's really capable of doing this ...

    To be used as Low Cost Satellite Launchers ..??

    I found this rather interesting link about the F-14's

    http://www.tour2space.com/archives/f-14lv/f-14-st.htm

    Give me an opinion about this ! What do you think, Failure or could-be-a-success ?

    Edit: This would mean they had to resign the wing aerodynamic althogh it would be rocket powered.. ?
Working...
