This is Thumbnail Page 3.  The men of the Aircraft Carrier, CV-63, USS Kitty Hawk, give us the freedom that we see in the United States.  This is a photo tour of the USS Kitty Hawk in 1977-1978.  Also, many other other exhibits from other cruises on this US Navy Ship.

This page has a lot of F-14 Tomcat pictures also many sunset photos from the USS Kitty Hawk CV-63.

This was the first West Pacific Cruise of the Kitty Hawk which had the F-14 Tomcat.  The USS Kitty Hawk just came out of the yards where it was completely rebuilt.  This aircraft carrier was spotless.  Every part of the Kitty Hawk was like new and many parts were.  This was the perfect ship to bring the F-14 Tomcats aboard.
