Honest to god I was expecting a tribute to Tom Cruise and Katey Holmes (aka, TomKat) at first glance. Like drinking juice when you were expecting whiskey.

Let's assume, for the benifit of the doubt, that this is an ironic comentary on the memorial sites for absolute strangers, as opposed to a mildly cool airplane.

The F-14 only gets it's sexy appeal because of the movie Top Gun. The F/A-18 is a far superior aircraft. If you want an aircraft that revolutionized carrier deck warfare, then you go with the A-6 Intruder.

who cares? I don't. Sorry, fighter jets being retired isn't a subject that reduces me to tears.

Reading the comments in support of the FA-18 makes me so happy. And YodaMoFo: Don't expect the hornet to retire for about another 20 years, though the Alpha model doesn't have long to go before we say goodbye.

It is a fine chariot, but where are ze horses? An excellent aircraft, both for its symbolic power and size, as well as its legacy in the armed forces. Kind of like retiring the old heavy Corsairs we used back in ww2 for newer, better aircraft.

The F18 might be newer and more advanced than the F14, but the Tomcat is very easy on the eyes, the f18 is not so hot

They made a beautiful successor to this aircraft. We will remember her as an age when carriers where cool and wings that moved where totally sweet.

No JET will ever be sexier than the Messerschmitt ME-262. But I love the old prop driven out of date bastards from WW2. P-40 Curtis Warhawk was teh sexarz.

Sad to see such an iconic plane go, but if the F/A-18 Super Hornets can be challenged by, say, a Chengdu J-10, what chance would a Tomcat have?

Jesus. Thanks to lifeless, celebrity worshipping women, I expected Tom and Katie. F*ck you, Hollywood.

An awesome aircraft that will be sorely missed.......what other plane had cool features like adjustable wings? ;-) The F-22 Raptor is pretty cool though.

It kinda pissses me off that you out YTMND for the sound location. Have a f*cking heart and put its real name idiot: Amazing Grace. Being Irish, that hurt alot.

An F-14 without any Top Gun music? I never thought I'd see the day... RIP. A good plane.

Hey wakko1337 aka dickhead: If you would look at a Ytmnd-o-matic, You would see that it says sound origin, not sound name. Yeah, I know it's amazing grace and I like and respect the song; that's why I picked it. But I found the file on ytmnd, not on Amazing Grace, so i put down ytmnd. But I guess you wouldn't know that because you are a downvoter who joined a week ago with no sites of your own.

A sad day for naval aviation. I really love ro think about the B-52 Stratofortress though, it's been in service for 50 years, and the military is not planning to take it out untill around 2040, thats like if we were still flying Curtis Jennys or Sopwith Camels or Spads in Iraq.

hungry eyes in the danger zone take your breath away as mighty wings go through the fire of your memories. playing with the boys while finding heaven in your eyes in destination unknown on those hot summer nights. sitting on the dock of the bay, losing that loving feeling you lead on me, top gun theme. i hope someone knows what im talking about.

It makes no sense to drop 30-year-old tech even when they are still effective and most of the world doesn't have them, but then again they need something to waste tax dollars on.

Well we could also strap TNT to our chests and walk into the nearest enemy mall, but don't you think that way would cause re-enlistment issues. I swear, some real idiots have been on this thread.
