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.

F-14A 161621 was delivered to VF-21 in 1984 and served with VF-111, VF-213, VF-124 and VF-154 “Black Knights”. In 1989 while with VF-111 the aircraft was given the nose art “Miss Molly”. VF-154 received F-14As in October 1983 and in 1998 took possession of F-14A 161621. In 1991 VF-154 moved to NAF Atsugi, Japan. On March 2 1999 while on board the USS Kitty Hawk VF-154 F-14A 161621, piloted by Lt. Baxter with CAG Captain McHarg along completed the 1000th trap before retiring the aircraft in 2004.
