The Grumman F-14 Tomcat is a twin-engine, variable sweep wings capable of supersonic flight. The aircraft is crewed by a Pilot and a Radar Intercept Officer who share the tasks of navigation, Navy and the Islamic Republic of Iran Air Force only. The name “Tomcat” is said to come from the call-sign used by Vice Admiral Thomas Connolly which conformed to the USN tradition of giving Grumman aircraft feline names. In 2001 VF-41 “Black Aces” made their final F-14 carrier deployment in 2001 before transitioning to the F/A-18E. To mark this occasion each aircraft aircraft had “Last Tomcat Cruise 1976-2001” printed on the vertical stabilizers, “First to Strike” on the port side leading edge and “First to Fight” on the starboard leading edge. A Maintenance Master Chief had named each aircraft after eleven of his girlfriends so it was decided to paint a name on the starboard side of each aircraft’s radome. The CAG’s aircraft BuNo 162608 received “Anna”.
