Grumman F-14A Tomcat Diecast Model
USN VF-1 Wolfpack, NK100, USS Enterprise, Vietnam, Operation Frequent Wind 1975


US Navy Fighter Squadron 1 (VF-1) Wolfpack was established on October 14th, 1972 at NAS Miramar as one of the first operational fighter squadrons to be equipped with the F-14A Tomcat. The squadron's first cruise took place in 1974 aboard the USS Enterprise. It was during that deployment that VF-1, along with VF-2, provided fighter cover for the evacuation of Saigon known as "Operation Frequent Wind". VF-1 deployed several more times aboard the Enterprise before being re-assigned to the USS Ranger and occasionally, the USS Kitty Hawk. The Ranger was decommissioned in 1993 and VF-1 was left without a carrier. They operated out of NAS Miramar until VF-1 itself was disestablished on October 1st, 1993.
