The Tomcat was introduced into fleet service by CVW-14 aboard USS Enterprise (CVAN-65). The newly formed VF-1 and VF-2 made that introduction, and with VF-1 already done, I started work on a F-14A Tomcat of VF-2 “Bounty Hunters”. From the photo reference i have been able to find, it seems that the chin pod of VF-1 was different from the one on the VF-2 birds. Can anybody disclose why that is ?
