I grew up 15 minutes from “Top Gun” the then at the time NAS Miramar. Pretty much everyday while growing up I saw two ship F14 formations flying out to missions or back from. Driving down the freeway it wasn’t uncommon for them to be practicing carrier landings and fly over your car at 50ft.

Man, the things i'd give to see the things you have!

BTW, although not old enough to to term the early A's exactly as my era, they are by far the most anticipated ones for me as well. Can't wait till someone makes those gull grey-white belly schemes to go along with them, preferably at least some made by HB themselves at launch. Especially the VF-1 and the VF-213 white nosed ones
