#OTD in 1991, an F-14 from VF-1 shot down an Iraqi Mil Mi-8 during the Persian Gulf War. It was the last air-to-air kill scored by a U.S. Navy Tomcat and the only one over a helicopter. A victory mark representing the helicopter was stenciled onto the F-14. #usn #navy #flynavy #aviation #plane

#FunFactFriday – Navy tradition holds that pilots who make a navigational error and land on the wrong carrier get mocked by the crew who “decorate” the plane with graffiti. Adding @USAirForce markings is the ultimate insult to an already embarrassed naval aviator #navy #Usn #plane #aviation #jet #airforce
