Very interesting to see an asymmetrical loadout.

One of the best jet fighters of all time looking naked without a bunch of Phoenix missiles tucked under the fuselage

Truly amazing picture. Althought I've never been on the deck of an American aircraft carrier, I think that this photo explains it very well.

A visitor from United States posted Mon March 28, 2011:
I definitely agree with the other post. This is the epitome of a Fighter Aircraft. Just look at it! The F-14 has a very distinctive look, like a wolf or fox!

If that guy wasn't behind the plane, this would be an even better shot. Good angle. Really shows the amount of power this plane can dish out. Ready to go and take care of business, for the last time.
