Super Sunday is a Super Day for the F-14D Preservation Project
By Jim
Hi folks,

It is my privilege to announce to you that at 1550 CST today (Sunday, Feb. 4, 2007), "Christine" the F-14 returned to Fort Worth at Meacham Field, to cheers and applause from 30 crew and volunteers and many onlookers. As Jim Bloomberg our aircraft acquisition specialist and team leader of this effort said tonight, "This was a team effort and we have a lot of people to thank." You all had a part in saving this F-14 and helping us bring her back here to Fort Worth. Not only was this the longest serving F-14 in the inventory, as it turned out, it was also the last F-14 to fly. As you can see from the pictures, the crew was a bit larger and wore Air Force blue.

There will be more to come later, but this is just a short note to let you all know, MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!

Bravo Zulu, all hands,

Jim Hodgson
President, OV-10 Bronco Association

The C-5 Galaxy was pretty well filled up by the Tomcat, although it wasn't pushing the weight limits! *Urrrp*! The F-14 touches down one last time in Fort Worth.
Big, awkward payloads are routine for C-5 crews.
