Coolest fighter ever

The Grumman F-14 Tomcat, in my opinion the coolest fighter craft of all time, is being retired. Instapinch has a great tribute.

This bad-ass jet is why I always catch "Top Gun" whenever it's on. I could care less for the cockiness of Tom "Maverick" Cruise or Val "Iceman" Kilmer, and even the [then] babeness of Kelly McGillis. I watch it for the awesome dogfights, baby!

Here's a great info page on the plane.

Dogfighting is for prima donnas; the real men are low and slow! If you want to see some real action, there's nothing better than an A-10 Warthog busting tanks with depleted uranium slugs. As far as fighters go, the P-51 Mustang was cooler.
