Print: F-14A Tomcat VF-1 ‘Wolfpack’

VF-1 ‘Wolfpack’ was established on 14 October 1972 at NAS Miramar, at the same time as VF-2. These units were the first operational fighter squadrons equipped with the Grumman F-14 Tomcat. VF-1 received the first F-14As on 1 July 1973. VF-1 was assigned to Carrier Air Wing 14 (CVW-14) aboard USS Enterprise. The first cruise came in September 1974. The end of the cruise saw the first Tomcat’s combat debut, as VF-1 and VF-2 flew cover over Saigon for evacuation of US personnel in April 1975 as part of Operation Frequent Wind.
