For all you guys who worship the Tomcat, it looks like it will make one final appearance at the 2006 NAS Oceana airshow. 99% sure they won't do a full on Demo, but probably a couple flyby's or something during the airpower demo. The page on the website says it isn't a done deal yet, but I can pretty much assure you that the Tomcat will be there in some form or another...

I passed through Oceana this past weekend and was pleased to see a couple of rows of F-14s. There were a couple in vivid color schemes. I keep thinking about the late 1970's Dayton Air Fairs where there were F-100, F-105, F-106, F-4, F-8, B-57, C-123, A-3, A-4, and so on. The flightline had variety.

I could also confirm ftrguy that the Tomcats will be a go at this years airshow. No word on if they plan on doing a last demo or just a goodbye flyby to the public before the retirement ceremony 2 weeks later.

Greetings to all the fans of �The Big Fighter�,

Well, it�s official. We conducted a brief with the Commander, Naval Air Forces U.S. Atlantic Fleet and he has approved our entire fleet flying program, including the Tomcat!

The F-14 will participate in the following events at the 2006 Oceana Air Show:

* U.S. Navy Fleet Flyby: Four Tomcats with four Hornets and four Super Hornets (Friday, Saturday and Sunday).
* U.S. Navy Air Power Demonstration: Four Tomcats performing the division level lay-down maneuver (Friday, Saturday and Sunday).
* Night Afterburner flyby at the 31st Street park to kick off the Neptune Festival Beach Blast (Saturday evening; event starts at 6:00pm; flyby scheduled for 7:30pm)

Thanks to everyone for your continued support and well wishes regarding this fabled Fighter. The 2006 Oceana Air Show will be a fitting finale for this historic aircraft and an excellent tribute to the men and women that flew and maintained her for so long.

Regards,
CDR Rich "Corky" Erie
NAS Oceana Air Show Director
