  • The history and legacy of the F-14 Tomcat is pivotal in America's naval aviation history and demonstrations one of our nation's resolve in promoting and keeping democracy strong.

    This special edition of Modern Marvels featuring the history of the Navy's F-14 Tomcat is exceptional, and accurate depicts the emotions of it pilots and crews of this fantastic aircraft. The Wings Over the Rockies Air and Space Museum, Denver, CO is currently having its Tomcat de-milled by Titan Systems, and it is a fantastic learning experience for our Restorations Team. Over the years, I have met many Tomcat drivers, RIOs, and maintenance crews and have experienced their 'love' of this awesome bird. The program covers many of the world events that the Tomcat has been associated with, but is only the tip of the iceberg. Purchasing a copy of this episode or recording it for your family is one small part of the many great abilities and advancement of our nation's modern marvels.
