Checkmate's Jet Between Goes by F16CrewChief Checkmate's Jet Between Goes by F16CrewChief
A deployment of eight VF-211 "Fighting Checkmates" jets deployed to Luke in November 1982 a few months after I was assigned there.

Here is interesting view of F-14A 159024 of VF-211, CVW-9, assigned to the USS Constellation and home based at NAS Miramar.
The jet has the wings in forward sweep and the spoilers are deployed.

You can see a "-60" power unit with the air duct and the power cables connected in preparation for the next launch evolution.

I went to high school near NAS Oceana, and used to watch them flying overhead while waiting for my ride home. AN amazing aircraft, and miss it.
