Magnificent deadly f-14 the red and ornage almost show its deadly "danger zone" quality.

A visitor from United States posted Tue April 25, 2006:
Perfect picture...the sunset behind makes for a great contrast between the dark yet smooth lines of this magnificent aircraft...brings back many memories of my youth (& Top Gun).
