Mission: To Preserve the History of the Greatest Fighter Jet the United States Navy Has Ever Flown.

December 21st marks the 50th Anniversary of the F-14 Tomcat's first flight!   We have a number of activities to commorate the day, but the 50th will be celebrated all year long with monthly installments (more details to come).  

Be sure to join us on Monday, Dec 21st, as we join our friends at thehangardeck.com for the first in a series of Tomcat videos. An early preview will be available on Sunday, Dec 20, as well. All of the details can be found at THEHANGERDECK.COM.

As part of our virtual event commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the Tomcat's First Flight, our friends at http://www.aircraftprofileprints.com/ are extending an incredible offer - 50% off Tomcat prints! This is a one-time only promotion and is good ONLY on Monday, December 21st. They will never do another 50% off promotion like this! It is a great way to score some great Tomcat prints or add to your collection.

Fine print:

  1. The 50% discount applies only to Tomcat prints (they have many aircraft types available, but the discount is only for the F-14).
  2. Discount is only valid on Monday, December 21st, 2020 (all time zones).
  3. These make great holiday presents for the Tomcat fanatic in your life, but given the late date of the event (Dec 21), there is no way prints will be delivered by Dec 25th.

The coveted 50th Anniversary patches are now available for purchase! Visit our partners at AV8RSTUFF.COM to pick-up this limited issue patch. A portion of the proceeds from each patch comes back to help fund F-14 Tomcat Association activities. We appreciate your support!



Get yours at our F-14 Tomcat Association Country Store:  https://av8rstuff.com/TApatches.html

 Thanks to Whitey at AV8RSTUFF.COM for working to get these patches available!  The 50th logo was designed by Bill Barto, our Association Historian.
