Virginia Beach, Va. (Sept. 16, 2005) – An F-14D Tomcat, assigned to the “Grim Reapers” of Fighter Squadron One Zero One (VF-101), flies low over the runway in full afterburner after taking flight for its tactical flight demonstration at the 2005 Naval Air Station Oceana Air Show. The last F-14 Tomcat public flight demonstration will be flown at the air show as the aircraft is phased-out of the Navy’s inventory. The air show, held Sept. 16-18th, showcased civilian and military aircraft from the Nation’s armed forces, which provided many flight demonstrations and static displays.
