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.

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!

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.

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