Good thing we cut up all those Tomcats so no spare parts would not fall into the hands of the Iranians.

The good news is [from one point of view] that the Marines probably need something more like the A6 than the F14. The bads new is that the A6s have [with limited exceptions?] have also been retired. Not sure about the Harriers, but ...?

Seriously, all airframes age ... but most aircraft are airworthy on their last day of service and their service life can be extended for a very long time ... even given the demands of carrier landings and the corrosive effects of the oceans.
