True Aircraft Write-ups

Ken and I wrote down the list and I posted it on the Internets in 1998. Back when I was new at this. Since then "The List" has been ascribed to every branch of the U.S. Military, The Delta Maintenance folks in Dallas, American Airlines, NASA, the Jet Propulsion Laboratory and Quantas. I'm sure there are others.

The F-14 Tomcat in Combat

"F Arba Ashara! Yalla! Yalla!" In English, that's "F-14! RUN! RUN!". A common radio call for Iraqi fighter pilots in the Eighties.

The Tomcat made its combat debut during Operation Frequent Wind, the evacuation of American citizens from Saigon, in April 1975. F-14As from Fighter Squadron 1 (VF-1) and VF-2, operating from the USS Enterprise (CVN-65), flew combat air patrols over South Vietnam to provide fighter cover for the evacuation route. Tomcats of the U.S. Navy shot down two Libyan Su-22's on 19 August 1981.

But Iranian F-14's had been blasting Iraqi MiGs out of the sky since September, 1980.
