It's All Over

...except for the singing.

'Top Gun' Fighter Jets End Final Mission

The Navy's last two squadrons of F-14 Tomcats are heading home, ending the final combat deployment of the Cold War-era fighter jet that flew into the danger zone with Tom Cruise in "Top Gun."

Headin' into twilight

Spreadin' out her wings tonight

She got you jumpin' off the deck

And shovin' into overdrive

Highway to the Danger Zone
I'll take you

Right into the Danger Zone...

Curse Dick for ordering the tools destroyed. The Tomcat 21 was a helluva better aircraft than the Sewer Hornet. I'll never forgive him for killing the Super Tomcat.

The pride of Long Island and Grumman Inc. My dad would be very sad to see this day.

Cheney ordered the tooling destroyed? What kind of pathelogical maniac is he? He killed the A-12, the P-4, and now you're telling me he destroyed the tooling for the F-14? Madness.

He must hate the navy or something.

And his and Rumsfeld's preoccupation with special forces is a bit worrisome.

What kinda goomba is he/them? Lord. As IF Hornets could do everything, lawn dart pieces of sh*t. I'd sure like to know what McDonnell-Douglas/Boeing et al, has paid out in graft ever since they sent the Intruder to the Rainbow Bridge.
