CW001613 Century Wings $224.95
CW001613.JPG Wings of Heroes (Santa Cat), Grumman F-14B VF-103 Jolly Rogers, AA201 from the USS George Washington. (Launch Configuration). This means wings are fixed in the full-forward position, leading and trailing edge flaps permanently deployed and the nose-gear compressed with launch bar extended. 1/72 Die Cast Model. US Navy Fighter Squadron 103 (VF-103) was activated in 1952. Three US Navy squadrons have used the name and insignia of the Jolly Roger: VF-61 (originally VF-17), VF-84, and VFA-103. While these are distinctly different squadrons that have no lineal linkage, they all share the same Jolly Rogers name, the skull and crossbones insignia and traditions. VF-103 began life as an F4U Corsair squadron and after progressing through the F9F Cougar, F-8 Crusader and F-4 Phantom II, it was among the last fighter squadrons to transition to the F-14A Tomcat. In 1989, they upgraded to a more powerful breed of Tomcat, the F-14B. When VF-84 was disestablished in 1995, VF-103 abandoned its (Sluggers) nickname and adopted the famous (Jolly Rogers) name and insignia for itself. After several deployments to the Persian Gulf, VF-103 deployed with the F-14B for the final time in 2004 aboard the USS John F. Kennedy before transitioning to the F/A-18F Super Hornets it operates today. While deployed aboard the USS George Washington in December of 2000, F-14B BuNo 161435 wore this festive Jolly Rogers insignia and earned the nickname (Santa Cat).
