I worked on that bird.

A visitor from United States posted Sat March 13, 2010:
Was working weekend duty in the Nellis avionics backshop when this happened. It was one of the cat's last big shows (retired in 06) and the pilot was really workin it. Planes flying around can be old hat on base and so no one cared much about missing the show, (just miffed about working on a weekend.) But one of the smokers on shift saw the above 20 feet part of this display while getting his fix and was impressed enough to come and get the rest of us. Not the best view (standing on top of a picnic table in a storage compound two blocks away) but one of the best displays I've seen.

A visitor from France posted Mon October 19, 2009:
I've seen this photo whith Sukhoi, or video with french Mirage F1 ... Somes pilots have "On/off" brain ... I'm sure it's "Maverick" and "Gus" in this cat!!!(with music "Higway to the Dangerzone") ...
Very good pic!

A visitor from Brazil posted Sun August 2, 2009:
Amazing sharpen! Great catch!

A visitor from - posted Sun May 10, 2009:
Wow!!! when they tell low altitude!!!

Great photo

A visitor from Netherlands posted Fri November 23, 2007:
Haha! With those teeth and mr. death on her tail, it looks as if she's protesting against her retirement, and flying in a pretty nonchalant way just a few feet above the ground conributes to that (I agree with her, if she is tryin to say that!)!!!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Wed October 31, 2007:
Perfect airplane photo!

A visitor from United States posted Thu October 18, 2007:
The cat is simply two massive engines strapped to a cockpit and wings- this thing is about to show off it's thrust to weight ratio and clear the deck!- best shot of tomcat on the db! -josh

A visitor from Iran, Islamic Republic Of posted Tue August 28, 2007:
I love f-14 and this one is the best shot of tomcat and shows the skillfulness of her pilot

A visitor from United States posted Tue July 31, 2007:
Finest bird ('Cat?) in the skies. Looks he just pulled the gear up and didn't bother with any altitude. Go Navy!

A visitor from United States posted Tue July 24, 2007:
I was there working security but while the f 14 was a part of the show I peeked because it was a very fun show

A visitor from Korea, Republic Of posted Fri July 6, 2007:
Great shot!!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue July 3, 2007:
This is my favourite f14 pic. a real working "tomcat" with loads of repair touch ups.and you have to look carefully for all the low-vis markings. loads of atmosphere.well worth a five!

A visitor from Croatia posted Tue May 8, 2007:
Wonderfully captured. I started taking photos of planes recently and I know how hard it is to catch a fast jet.

A visitor from Spain posted Sun April 22, 2007:
Reaping the grass!

A visitor from Philippines posted Sun April 22, 2007:
This photo captures how fast the f-14 is flying. Great angle and colors!!

A visitor from Philippines posted Sun March 25, 2007:
Wow! Beautiful!!! One of the best shots ever! Beautiful depth of field!! Great shot!

A visitor from Bosnia And Herzegovina posted Fri February 16, 2007:

A visitor from United States posted Tue February 13, 2007:
Excellent shot just seconds before transitioning to the vertical in full afterburner. I've seen Tomcats perform this move many times, always impressed by the sheer power of this A/C. Too bad we won't get to see this again. Long live THE CAT!

A visitor from United States posted Wed January 17, 2007:
Grim Reapers

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Thu December 7, 2006:
The finest tomcat shot bar none - no fancy vapours and burners, just raw power down on the deck.

A visitor from Singapore posted Thu November 30, 2006:
My favorite 'Cat' of All Time. The original long range multiple track, shot and kill jet fighter plane.

Who says only (Russian) MiG and Sukhoi pilots know how to keep it this low? A Good fighter pilot (regardless of nationality) with sublime flying skills can do it.

Thanks, Kevin, for sharing this picture.

A visitor from United States posted Mon October 23, 2006:
It's a great picture showing raw power, but also very dangerous!! I would have to add - keeping it OFF the deck!!

A visitor from United States posted Mon October 23, 2006:
Incredible Shot. You can see the pilot and RIO. I know from personal experience that this is a hard shot to get. One more thing while the Navy is good, the Air Force does it better.

A visitor from Costa Rica posted Mon October 23, 2006:
This is a shot. Period. Awsome one

A visitor from Sweden posted Mon October 23, 2006:
Bloody top notch shot!
