Grumman F-14 Tomcat This plane is a Navy aircraft. The F-14 is another popular airplane. It has variable geometry wings. In a nut shell, that means that it can move it's wings-like the B-1. It can go very fast, and is good in dogfights. It can carry a certain type of missle that cann't be carried by any other aircraft. They are called "Phoenix" missles. It also has a gun with a lot of bullets. It was evolved from the F-111, which also had "swing wings". The eingines had many problems, including the engine parts breaking off and hitting the inside. It also had another roll: it would protect aircraft carriers. That was useful so that if another airplane shot an anti-ship missle, the F-14 could take care of it.
