grumman F-14 original logo

By
just for comparison with the royal tomcat elsewhere in my gallery. this was the official original aircrew patch,and every squadron in the US Navy had their own version. for example-VF-84 "Jolly Rogers" featured the 2-tailed cat dressed as a pirate along with appropriate variations for other Navy units,also the only foreign customer{Iran}had the cat in a persian costume,nicknamed "Ali-Cat} Anytime,Baby!

The look on the cat's face will always reflect the motto "Anytime, Baby!"

I never realised the Tomcat logo had two tails. Thanks for the interesting info in the description. :)

2 vertical fins on the plane,2 tails on the alleycat mascot...it fits!

Lol good point. Too bad they decomissioned the Tomcat. But ohwell I doubt anyone will forget it anytime soon. ^^

I use to have a bunch of the patches for the Tomcat. Have no idea where they went. Probably to desert with the aircraft. Very nice collection you have.

The F-14s were marvellous machines.
TomCatDriver's avatar
still are.....if only they had gone ahead with Tomcat21.......
Rhodenris's avatar
I wish they did... however a certain someone scrapped it! Can you guess who?
TomCatDriver's avatar
The Pentagon,AKA "Fort Fumble"
Rhodenris's avatar
That's correct.

I wish they didn't scrap the program...
TomCatDriver's avatar
it would have been worth staying in the reserves for,to have been part of the program launch team that made it happen......

Why is it two-tailed?
TomCatDriver's avatar
2 fins on the plane,2 tails on the cat.
