The F-14 Tomcat is a supersonic, long-range, high-endurance interceptor fighter aircraft operated by the US Navy as their primary air superiority fighter and to defend its carrier battle groups against anti-ship missiles. The F-14 has a two-seat cockpit with a bubble canopy that affords all-round visibility. It features variable geometry wings that swing automatically between 20° and 68° during flight. For high-speed intercept, they are swept back and they swing forward for lower speed flight.
The Miss Molly was one of VF-111 Sundowners Tomcats aboard the USS Carl Vinson. The name and colorful artwork is in honor of Miss Molly Snead, who was Vinson's nurse for several years.
