Tomcat's Last Westpac Cruise 

The sun is setting on the F-14 Tomcat. As the F/A-18 E and F Join the fleet, more of the veterans from Grumman's "Iron Works" are going to the boneyard. The F-14's first combat cruise was to Westpac aboard Enterprise in 1974 , this will be her last. There is a lot of capability that is being given up by going to the Superbug.
