Local History


Deland Naval Air Station Museum

The Navy is making the F-14, one of only 400 in existence, available for display by the museum. The jet fighter was manufactured in 1981.

Specs: The aircraft is a supersonic, twin-engine, variable sweep wing, two-place strike fighter manufactured by Grumman Aircraft Corp., according to a U.S. Navy Web site. Tomcats are remaining in service until 2007; by then they will have all been replaced by the F/A-18 E/F Super Hornet.
