Hobby Master HA5229 1:72 Grumman F-14A Tomcat 160408, VF-84, USS Theodore Roosevelt, May 1993

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.

 VF-84 was established on July 1, 1955 as VF-86 but changed to VF-84. This was the third unit to be named VF-84 and they assumed the nickname “Jolly Rogers”. F-14A 160408 c/n 264 made an appearance in the movie “Executive Decision” as Vic 201. In 1993 and assigned to VF-84 160408 deployed with the USS Theodore Roosevelt on March 11, 1993 until September 8 for a cruise to the Mediterranean, Adriatic and Red Sea. This would be their last on USS Theodore Roosevelt as they were disestablished on October 1, 1995.
