USN VF-14 Tophatters, AJ200, USS Enterprise, Last F-14 Cruise 2001

US Navy Fighter Squadron 14 (VF-14) Tophatters can trace its long history all the way back to 1919. It began carrier operations in 1926 aboard USS Langley, flying the NAF TS-1 biplane. After flying a variety of aircraft, the squadron (then designated VS-41) flew the SBD Dauntless during WWII. The squadron was officially designated VF-14 in 1949 while flying the F4U Corsair. It entered the jet age in 1954 with the F3D Skyknight and later flew the F-4 Phantom II from 1963 to 1974. The Tophatters transitioned to the F-14 Tomcat in 1974 and stuck with it for 27 years. The final F-14 cruise took place aboard the USS Enterprise in 2001, after which, it moved on to the F/A-18 Super Hornet that it still flies today.
