Grumman F-14 Tomcat Gulf of Sidra by shelbs2 Grumman F-14 Tomcat Gulf of Sidra by shelbs2
Grumman F-14 Tomcat at the Smithsonian Steven Udvar Hazy Center. This is one of the F-14s that participated in the Gulf of Sidra incident which resulted in the downing of a pair of Liybian Mig-23s

I am afraid the info is incorrect, because in the gulf of Sidra incident the first kill is credited to Fast Eagle 102, the second to Fast Eagle 107. The one we see in this pic is 105. you can check from this link: [link](1981)

The aircraft was CILOP into an F-14D Super Tomcat.

museum website says otherwise. might be thinking of the 81 incident. this one took part in the 89 combat

Navy:4 , Libya: 0 baby!

strangely enough I read this jet never flew a single sortie during OIF, instead being VF-31's hangar queen. that's what the insricption "I gave so others could fly" on the medal painted on the nose
