Is it me? or does it say NAVY on the bottom of the a/c? Rare shot and a good one!

Definitely does say NAVY. Easy to see, certainly when you enlarge the image. Is that a strange thing or something? Is this plane supposed to be operating from land? I guess it is, right? Well, maybe they only just got this one in from the navy and havent removed the markings yet.

I believe the VFMAT-101 trains with both the Navy and Marines. The other side of the jet has Marine titles.

I really think that evening or night shots with full AB are a great way to showcase the strength of the aircraft. Hmmm any night launches of the SR-71 Blackbird?

Navy fighter squadrons are based at Naval Air Stations, then deploy to the Carrier after it leaves port; they usually make a 6 month deployment, then leave the ship and return to NAS at end of cruise; BTW....squadrons include both Naval and Marine aviators.
Very nice photo!
