All twenty two Tomcats from VF-31 and VF-213 return home to Oceana after the final Tomcat combat cruise. This sight will never be repeated again.

The Tomcat will be fondly remembered, and sorely missed. Nice shot, by the way. I just wish I could have been there to see it.

Wow! Kind of reminds me of those world war 2 fighter sweeps here. The Tomcat is my all time
favorite. The original multiple track, shot & kill fighter of the modern era with the world's longest range radar & missiles ever mounted on a fighter in it's day. Battle proven against Sukhois & MIGs it was built to counter. So long, "Tom", as you fade into aviation history. Thanks, Neil, for sharing a great capture here.

The formation is a bit wonky, especially the trailing group of four, but a nice shot for sure, and a great sight.

I saw this from a different perspective billed as "The World's 12th Most Powerful Air Force." Coming from an old Naval Aviation sailor like me it brings a tear. Superb shot, Neil. One of the best on the site!

Still one of the ugliest fighters of all time. F-18, f-15, and f-22. They all take the cake above the lowly f-14.
