The End of an Era

This is something it might be worth taking a few hours off from work to watch:
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."

Fighter Squadrons VF-213 and VF-31 - 22 Tomcats in all - are scheduled to fly to Oceana Naval Air Station on Friday, one day before the aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt is to return to Norfolk Naval Station, the Navy said Monday.
