I decided to digitally repaint my modern illumination [link] in my quasi-speed painted style. It was redone to commemorate the recent retirement of the F-14 Tomcat from US naval service. The Tomcat entered service in '72 and will be replaced by the F/A-18 Super Hornet.

I have to say I like this version alot better. Now let's all join hands and sing "Highway to the Dangerzone"

When my dad was still a machanic in the Navy, I got the chance to see a Grumman F-14 TOMCAT up close, and I mean REALLY UP CLOSE!, when I was little, and I also got to walked the flightdeck of an Aircraft Carrier while looking for FOD(Foregin Objects on Deck) with my dad and the ship's crew, and got to go down into the Carrier's hanger, and when me and my family moved back south we had to stop at a Naval port, so my dad could broad his Carrier, and while there he pointed out to me the USS (CV-67) John F. Kennedy while at port, though all I could see was her outline and the number 67 on her tower. But I was really sad when the F-14 Tomcat landed for the last time, but never more, will she take to the skies.
