F-14 Tomcat Jet Fighter Books telling the True Story of these amazing jet fighters and the pilots that flew them.

The f-14A had two Pratt & Whitney TF-30 engines producing 20,900 lbs of thrust each with a total of 41,800 lbs of thrust.  Later models of the F-14 used 2 General Electric F110 engines producing, in afterburner, 27,000 lbs each and a total of 54,000 lbs of thrust.  The F-14 tomcat had an empty weight of 40,100 lbs with a max weight of 74,000 lbs.  The tomcat was 62' 8" Long, 16' high and had a max wingspan of 64' 1".  The F14 's cruise speed is 610 mph and it has a max speed of 1544 mph. This is the military 's second swing wing jet fighter, the first was the F-111.  This plane is a 2 place jet fighter and was termed the fleet defender.  It first flew on 21 Dec 1970 and had its first west coast fleet deployment on the USS Kitty Hawk, CV-63 in 1977.  I was on that cruise, C. Jeff Dyrek, webmaster.  We have a great exhibit on this cruise showing the tomcats, just here to see this cruise with the F-14 Tomcats   This page covers as many of the F-14 books as I could find, however I am still adding more F-14 books regularly.  These airplane books and fighter jets are listed by and Historic Aviation Books.
There are many versions of this plane, these specs cover only one version.

Tomcat! : The Grumman F14 Story 

Paul T. Gillcrist 
Hardcover / Published 1994 

TOMCAT! The Grumman F-14 Story is an exciting oral history of the most versatile air supremacy fighter in the world . . . much of it  written from the vantage point of the airplane's cockpit! Told in an anecdotal format, this new book is richly marbled with the salt air of  fleet experience. Perhaps the F-14 program's greatest success is its overwhelming acceptance by the youngsters in the fleet. Anecdotes  about the Tomcat legend abound . . . especially in the chapters devoted to its employment by the fleet in the oceans of the world. Of particular interest are the chapters dealing with the sale of Tomcats to Iran and the subsequent integration of the airplane into Iran's armed  forces. On-the-scene eye witness accounts provide a unique perspective of this fascinating aspect of the Tomcat story. TOMCAT!  contains over 150 photographs, most in color and never before published, and most of them taken by Tomcat aircrews with hand-held cameras. These provide a fascinating backdrop for the oral history contained in the book. This is not a garden variety history about an airplane. It is a sometimes heart-stopping story of how a controversial airplane finally made it into the hearts and minds of the fleet . . .  after stumbling at the starting gates of an outmoded defense acquisition system. It is the story of the best air supremacy fighter in the world! Rear Admiral Paul Gillcrist, USN (Retired), commanded a fleet fighter squadron on three carrier combat deployments to the  Tonkin Gulf during which he flew 167 combat missions over Vietnam. For these he was awarded seventeen combat decorations. In his  thirty-three year flying career as a fleet pilot and Navy test pilot as well, he flew 71 different U.S. and foreign tactical airplanes including  the U.S. Air Force's F-104, F-105, F-106, F-15, F-16, YF-17 and F-20. He flew the Navy's F-4, F-5, F-8, F-11, F-14 and F/A-18  as well as several key foreign tactical airplanes. During his carrier flying career, which spanned an amazing twenty-seven years, he commanded a fighter squadron, a carrier air wing and was the wing commander for all Pacific Fleet fighter squadrons. He flew from  sixteen carriers, and in his last flying assignment accumulated over four hundred flight hours in the Tomcat culminating, at age 51, in  becoming the first flag officer to land the Tomcat on an aircraft carrier - the U.S.S. KITTYHAWK on 21 October 1980. The author of  FEET WET, Reflections of a Carrier Pilot, Admiral Gillcrist is eminently qualified to write the F-14 story!, over 150 color & b/w photographs, 8 1/2" x 11"

From the Wright Brothers to top gun

by Michael Paris 
218 pages (July 1995) 

The cinema and aviation developed alongside each other, and were both products of the technology and imagination of the early 20th century. This book examines the ways in which aeroplanes and flying have been portrayed in the many different genres within popular cinema, from Hollywood epics to comedy spoofs to modern tragedies. It covers over 500 American and British films, including, "The Dambusters", "The High and the Mighty", "Airplane", "Top Gun" and "The Shadowmakers". The study argues that the basic themes of the aviation film were established in the 1920s, through such Hollywood epics as "Wings" and "Hell's Angels", and that the portrayal of aviation has changed little between those early features and contemporary films. Tha author also examines the way in which aviation films have been used to create a dynamic national image and promote technological achievement and national Endeavour.

Hope your day is going well. Your website is the best CV-63 and VF-114 site I have seen, but I am trying to get in touch with my shipmates from the 77-78 cruise. I was a plane captain for VF-114 and based atMiramar with the Aardvarks. Any suggestions on sites or resources to find some old buddies.
