Snodgrass got into the airplane straight out of flight school in 1974, when the F-14 was new and no other low-time pilots had flown it. Snodgrass was the first flight school graduate to be selected for F-14 Tomcat training. He soon became the definitive F-14 pilot. In 1985, he became the Navy’s Fighter Pilot of the Year. The following year, the film Top Gun turned the viewing public into crazed F-14 fans (Snodgrass did a little flying for it), and Grumman named him Topcat: Best F-14 Pilot of the Year.
Snodgrass has racked up more than 4,800 hours, making him the highest-time Tomcat pilot in history. After 26 years of decorated service, Captain Snodgrass retired in June 1999. Photograph is a limited edition of 1978 and is personally signed by Dale Snodgrass. Certificate of Authenticity included.
