Default Some Great F-14 reading.

Just while I was browsing the net for F-14 related stuff - I can’t think why! - I found these articles. I found them an excellent read and very enlightening to some of the F-14s handling characteristics, as well as just life on the boat

Part 2: http://www.thedrive.com/the-war-zone...e?iid=sr-link5

Part 3: http://www.thedrive.com/the-war-zone...-topgun-school

Part 4: http://www.thedrive.com/the-war-zone...gendary-hotrod

I’m extrmemely proud that my father is one of the British Omani Hunter Pilots he mentioned flying very low in part two. My dad has mentioned how he had a lot of fun doing practice combat against F-14s from the USN during that exact time period and then finding a article written by one of those F-14 Pilots has blown my mind

Good stuff! Can't wait to fly the turkey in the groove. It will certainly be harder than the F-18. All that Dutch roll, using the elevator and the DLC as well to control glide slope...sounds like fun
