1/72 Witty Wings US Navy F14A Tomcat VF 154 Black Knights Sqd, USS Kitty Hawk 2003
Happy Blue's Monday guys, my entry is about my F14 Tomcat variant from Witty Wings. The US Navy F14A Tomcat VF 154 Black Knights Sqd, USS Kitty Hawk 2003. US Navy Fighter Squadron 154 (VF-154) Black Knights was the new designation given to VF-837 on February 4th, 1953. The squadron transitioned from the F9F Panther through the FJ-3 Fury, F-8 Crusader and F-4 Phantom II before upgrading to the F-14 Tomcat in October, 1983. The Black Knights deployed many times with the F-14 on various Nimitz class carriers. The squadron's final cruise with the F-14 took place in 2003 aboard the USS Kitty Hawk. Upon return, VF-154 was redesignated VFA-154 and transitioned to the F/A-18F Super Hornet.
