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, 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.

Grumman F-14A 160395 was delivered to the USN on May 17, 1977 and later that month assigned to VF-32 “Swordsmen” as AC-203. The aircraft later went to VF-41 “Black Aces” as AJ-114 and then transferred to VF-84 “Jolly Rogers”. VF-33 “Starfighters” took possession of 160395 AB-204 in 1990 and saw action in ODS. In October 1993 VF-33 was disestablished and the next squadrons to possess 160395 were 102, 142 before being sent to the National Naval Aviation Museum in Florida who later loaned the aircraft to Air Zoo Aerospace and Science Experience, Michigan as VF-84 AJ-200.
