Stowed in the lower decks of Aircraft Carrier USS Ranger moored at Fremantle, Western Australia. * This photo I would like to dedicate to Mike Hart from TEDs camera Store, Adelaide who passed away in 2010 - R.I.P. He loved this photo and was insistant in acquiring a copy from me. If he's listening, I hope you're flying as you dare now... *

I think the F-14 Tomcat is the most beautiful jetfighter ever, closely followed by the F-16 and Su-27. But I believe it was also a relatively large technical leap forward from jets like the F-4. Btw look at the tail at the right. What does 'NE' stand for? Nevada? New England? Or is it a base or squadron code?

Ah, reminds me of home (well, close - I was with VA-82 on USS Nimitz, 1979-1982). Re: the visitor from the Netherlands - the "NE" tail code refers to the Carrier Air Wing to which the squadron belongs. If the first letter is an "A", then the wing is based on the East Coast. If the first letter is an "N", then the wing is West Coast. CVW-8, to which VA-82 belonged, was coded "AJ". I hope that this helps.
