The F-14 Tomcat... Still The Sexiest Fighter Ever
Yes she was a navy girl, but she was, and still is, the best looking fighter the United States has ever flown. Guest blogger Tumbleweed just sent me a link to a tribute video for the F-14, soon to be retired and put out to pasture. Definitely one of the best fighter clips I've seen. It's even honest about what a goat this plane was when it first rolled off the assembly line, yet the Tomcat proved itself over the years.

Ironically, this leaves Iran flying the only Tomcats in operational roles. No idea how many are still airworthy.
They still have 'em flying? I thought they finally ran out of ductape.10:36 PM
