Ah, reminds me of home (well, close - I was with VA-82 on USS Nimitz, 1979-1982). Re: the visitor from the Netherlands - the "NE" tail code refers to the Carrier Air Wing to which the squadron belongs. If the first letter is an "A", then the wing is based on the East Coast. If the first letter is an "N", then the wing is West Coast. CVW-8, to which VA-82 belonged, was coded "AJ". I hope that this helps.

A visitor from Netherlands posted Thu July 29, 2010:
I think the F-14 Tomcat is the most beautiful jetfighter ever, closely followed by the F-16 and Su-27. But I believe it was also a relatively large technical leap forward from jets like the F-4. Btw look at the tail at the right. What does 'NE' stand for? Nevada? New England? Or is it a base or squadron code?
