The Grumman F-14 Tomcat is a twin-engine, variable sweep wings capable of supersonic flight. 
The aircraft is crewed by a Pilot and a Radar Intercept Officer who share the tasks of navigation, 
target acquisition, ECM and weapons usage. The Tomcat was operated by the United States 
Navy and the Islamic Republic of Iran Air Force only. The name “Tomcat” is said to come from the 
call-sign used by Vice Admiral Thomas Connolly which conformed to the USN tradition of giving 
Grumman aircraft feline names.

In August 1948 VF-193 was established. In October 1963 the squadron transitioned to the F-4B 
Phantom II and was re-designated VF-142 “Ghostriders”. In January 1974 VF-142 deployed with 
the USS America returning in August 1974 to begin a transition to the Grumman F-14A. In April 
1975 VF-142 moved to NAS Oceana, Virginia from NAS Miramar, Florida. VF-142 would sail on 
the USS America until August 1978 when they transferred to the USS D.D. Eisenhower. F-14A 
msn 115 was produced in 1975 and was sent to AMARC in 1992.
