Best President Ever. (to date)

Best Fighter Aircraft Ever. (to date)

Seems logical to me.

I love the Tomcat and Reagan was an excellent President. Maybe someday when Bush 41 passes away, his library will erect a display of the dive bomber he flew in the Pacific.

Too bad I have to miss this. I just love the Reagan Library...I have spent many days there. Hope to get down that way this fall to see the 707.

The F-14 will be trucked from Point Mugu to the Reagan Library overnight to avoid problems with traffic

Well, duh. Why don't they just fly it in, and avoid traffic alltogether?

Sometimes I don't think people think...

Pretty cool having an F-14 at your peace park, though..

From www.reaganfoundation.org:
Monday, August 22, 2005,10:00 AM- 11:30 AM

F-14 Arrival Ceremony at the Reagan Library:

• Come join us at the Reagan Library on Monday, August 22nd to personally witness another momentous milestone in the making of the Library’s new Air Force One Pavilion – the installation of a F-14 Tomcat at the Library’s Peace Plaza. In an exciting operation, this 44,000 pound aircraft will be craned into place in a ceremony celebrating President Reagan’s “peace through strength” initiative. The Tomcat will serve as a dramatic bridge between the Pavilion and the Presidential Learning Center. This event is standing-room only and is free to attend (regular admission applies to visit the Museum). No reservations are required. Complimentary parking shuttles will run on Presidential Drive throughout the day.

Schedule of Events:

10:00 a.m. - F-14 gets craned over 35 foot-high colonnade (open to the public to watch)

11:00 a.m. - Arrival Ceremony Program Begins (includes keynote speaker Rear Admiral Venlet and the final movement of the F-14 to the Peace Plaza)

11:30 a.m. - Ceremony Concludes

Members will be notified in advance with additional event details.
(Programs and events subject to date change. Before you visit, please call to confirm event.)

Any indication of the BuNo? Wouldn't it be great if the aircraft was one of the Tomcats that actually flew the Achille Lauro intercept mission?

Hehe, a warmongering F-14 in something called the "Peace Plaza" at the Reagan Library...oh, you know THAT is going to make some Cindy Sheehan-loving heads explode! I love it!

30,000-pound Northrop Grumman aircraft

They stripped that one down quite a bit. Empty weight on an operational model is 42,000lbs. Max Cat Shot 76,000lbs (that hurts), Max Trap 54,000lbs (unless you were on the U.S.S. America).
