Every once in awhile, a new book comes along that literally takes your breath away with page after page of never-before-seen photographs punctuated by pith, no-hold-barred text taken straight from conversations overheard at Happy Hour at the O Club. Grumman F-14 Tomcat is just such a book...Authors and photographers Dave Hey Joe Parsons, George Hall, and Bob Lawson have created nothing less than the ultimate celebration of the foremost air superiority fighter of the Cold War, and one of the most potent fighter bombers of the Gulf Wars as well. From the runway at Miramar to the flight deck of the USS Carl Vinson, this book takes you where the action is. --Wings

There are labors of love, and then there s this book, put together by three experienced, highly motives individuals, each bringing his own special skills to the project. [Grumman F-14 Tomcat] provides some fabulous photography and wonderful memories, all for a very reasonable price. This is not a history of the Tomcat, although going through all the quotations you certainly gain a sense of the F-14 s story and contribution...The concept is elegant in its simplicity: a magnificent collection of color pictures from professional photographers as well as the people who flew or maintained, and clearly loved, the Tomcat...The photos are juxtaposed with poetic memories, short and long, but all highly readable...Tomcat Bye-Bye...! is a terrific requiem for one of the modern era s greatest jet fighters. It will bring several hours of pleasant browsing and reminiscence to operator and enthusiast alike. Great job, baby --Naval Aviation News

This book is nothing less than a love story told in pictures and a few, well chosen words. Large, glamorous images of the Turkey taken by many of today's foremost aviation photographers are accompanied by short quotes from those who flew, wrenched, and in a few cases, punched out of this beloved big dawg of a fighter. The text is added in such a way that each recollection appears poetic, although describing how two NFO's jumped from the cockpit of a Tomcat under tow, as the combination of a tight carrier turn and a rogue wave launched Tomcat and tractor over the side, probably doesn't qualify as poetic...The images are simply stunning. Ranging from silhouette-lit sunset profiles to close-ups taken during the filming of Top Gun, you'll see Grumman's last Cat from every conceivable vantage point (including a few that will leave you wondering how that picture was possibly taken)...Highly recommended, particularly if 'call the ball' fits anywhere in your vernacular --IPMS Journal

Reseña del editor:

For thirty-five years of active naval service, the Grumman F-14 Tomcat has served as the foremost air superiority fight of the cold war with continuing service as a fighter-bomber in the Gulf Wars.  It is this service and the two hundred thousand sailors, both pilots and “ground” crew, who served in F-14 squadrons with the Tomcat over the years.   This book is a grand remembrance of this great aircraft by those flew it. Hundred of pilots have included their favorite stories of the missions and plane that brought them home.  Two hundred exceptional color photographs show the 
F-14 on the deck, in the air and over the sea.
