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 remember seeing the F-14 for the first time... I thought it was the coolest looking jet of all time... and I still do today.

That tomcat may have been painted in the markings of VF-213 The Black Lions, but the medal painted on the side of its nose says "I gave so others could endure" which means that at some point, maybe near the end of its career, this jet was kept back stateside as a source of spare parts to keep other jets in the squadron operational at sea.

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)
