  1. Wow….I guess I never realized just how many tie downs it took to keep an F-14 restrained….looks like at least a dozen (especially in that head-on shot).

  2. Bob, great series of on board photos. Where is the Phantom on your six story from? The Approach?

  3. Approach magazine was Navair safety magazine, sorry to say I did not keep the article, Apparently it made a forced landing on a highway some where, I do remember he had enlisted mechanic in the back seat, all else I don’t recall.

  4. Nice, brings back memories of when I first joined the Navy in the 80s thanks for sharing!
