Show Reports

NAS Oceana 2005

Arno Marchand | September 2005
When the Tomcat still ruled the Navy

November 2017, while cleaning out the AviaMagazine office we discovered a CD hidden away in a box. What a treasure it turned out to be. Unpublished photos from the NAS Oceana Air Show 2005, yes the days the Tomcats were still flying!

Many units were present during the show days, some still flying the F-14, others already operating the F/A-18. VF-101 was present demonstrating the F-14D and like many US air shows a heritage tribute was flown with a QF-4 and 2 Sabres. And off course, no Navy air show is complete without the Blue Angels.
