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.

On March 15, 1980 the USS Carl Vinson was launched and commissioned in 1982. The ship was named after Senator Carl Vinson considered the father of the modern US Navy. The honour of christening the ship was given to the Navy nurse who had been a long time nurse/aide to the Senator and his wife. Molly Snead AKA “Miss Molly” was also honored when a C-1A transport was named after her. In 1989 the C-1A retired and the name and nose art were given to VF-111 F-14A 161621.
