I already nagged some forum members directly and asked in another post but if it is o.k. I'll just try my luck here as well to increase my chances. I hope that will be o.k.
I am looking for some decent photographs on three Tomcats.
The first is the Oceana gate guard F-14D 164604 in its current dress as a Pukin Dog. That specific design is very appealing (at least to me) although it never really flew in these particular markings. As said, I already nagged in the Gate Guard thread but just to make sure, is anybody out there who might not have it all too far to Oceana and who would be willing to take/share some decent shots of 164604 as I am unfortunately on the other side of the Atlantic?
The second Tomcat I am looking for is Tomcat 164341 as Grim Reaper "Gunfighter 115" from the year 2001. That Tomcat is very near and dear to me especially in that scheme and it would be great if anybody here might have the one or other shot of this special lady. I know she was the last Tomcat that was flown into the desert in 2006 somewhen late September. Some years ago someone who was lucky enough to have witnessed her final landing in AMARG apparently posted some shots of her last touchdown in several photo and modelling related forums but unfortunately it is so long ago that these photographs disappeared from the picture servers. Is anybody around here who might have and would be able to share some shots of her arriving in AMARG? She wore the colors of AJ-112 of VF-31 and had some final wishes written on the star side of the nose.
The third Tomcat I am looking for is F-14A Tomcat 160409 in any scheme. She started out in '77 as a Grim Reaper AD-106, moved on to VF-41, serving as AJ-111 and eventually served with VF-143 until September 1988 when she sadly crashed in the markings as AG-107. I know there is very little chance that there are photos of her out there but maybe some of the pros here around might have something on this lady. If not at all, I would already be happy if anyone found a good shot of the Pukin Dogs of the late '80s. Their scheme differed somewhat of the one they adorned their B's with in later years and good reference is next to nothing.
Thanks a lot in advance to anyone who takes the effort to help me out here.
warmest regards and of course a good, blessed and healthy new phototaking-year to everyone!
