<2nd>rangersCheck this out...Its about what the F-14 pilot. thinks of the f-18. Navy F-14 pilots speak vividly about the SuperHornet (in an Associated Press article in late 2001): "Its the same old Hornet shit, repackaged, which was designed to keep the politicians happy." He said that "it can never match the Tomcat's long range, (Mach) 2.4 speed and predator mystique. (...) The capability the Tomcat has for speed is amazing, there is not another plane in the Navy's inventory that can come anywhere close to it. You look at the plane on the ground and it looks intimidating, it looks like something that is made for war. I hope the liberal fudge packing, (...) who thought the Hornet could replace this avaition masterpiece rot in hell."

Amen brother! I think the whole thing with the F18 that they gain, is easier maintenance, and fly by wire controls. The problem is that they give up the speed, range, firepower and coolness of the F-14! I don't think it's a fair trade.

The first F-14's were grossly underpowered, and had to refuel way too soon after take off, because they had to take off on full afterburner. They switched engines to address this problem in the -b to -d variants.

I've only seen the F-14 in flight once. It wasn't a demo.. it was in Victoria, B.C. and they were stationed in SanDiego. They were supposed to do a demo, but got called back for some official purpose or something. They did do something amazing though... took off in formation (3 of them) on full afterburner.. verticle take off.. were gone in like 5 seconds!!!! :eek: ..WOW... it was amazing.. they said they would be back in San Diego in like an hour!

That is tooo cool!

YEP that's a drawing. Saw it at an airshow the guy who sold them said that it's a mix of comp. animation, and drawing. The B1 is able to operate at those low(maybe not that low) alttitudes. Thats is it's main roll (low level flight and bombing) They can operate at altittudes of 100-500ft. Sub sonic.(450-600MPH.)!! NUTZ what a rush :rock: I have a tape here at the house that talks about the B1, B52, and the B2, but that was before that B2 went into service.
