It is one of the most distinctive, versatile and effective planes in military history. Since entering service in 1973 as a replacement for the F-4 Phantom, the Tomcat has escorted Soviet bombers, engaged Libyan pilots in the Mediterranean, and served with distinction in the Gulf War and Afghanistan, among countless other missions.
MODERN MARVELS® tells the complete story of this legendary aircraft, following it from the initial design sessions to its most recent missions. Find out how its sweep-wing technology works and why it was developed, and track the innovations that have kept the F-14 effective for nearly three decades.
Pilots reveal what it is like to fly the Tomcat in combat, and our cameras capture the action from inside the cockpit as an F-14 soars at supersonic speeds.
This is the complete story of one of the most successful fighter planes ever made.
