The Swordsmen operated the F-4 Phantom from 1966 to 1973 when the squadron transitioned to F-14 Tomcats, along with it´s sister squadron VF-14. This illustration depicts the very last paint scheme ever to have been worn by a Swordsmen Phantom. VF-32 were among the first squadrons to get the all new F-14 Tomcat and thus the squadron didn´t operate the F-4 for long. Perhaps thats why you don´t see as many photos of VF-32 Phantoms around the web…a bit of a shame, as they actually are both quite attractive and different from the style used on most other contemporary squadrons.
