Print: F-14A Tomcat VF-84 ‘Jolly Rogers’
After its transition to the F-14 was completed, VF-84 ‘Jolly Rogers’ squadron embarked on its first cruise on the USS Nimitz in December 1977. In January 1980, the Nimitz diverted from the Mediterranean to take up station in the Arabian Sea in response to the Iranian hostage crisis and in April participated in the failed hostage rescue attempt. In November 1983, the squadron embarked on an extended deployment off the coast of Beirut, Lebanon, in support of a multinational peacekeeping force. During 1985, VF-84 spent 68 days off the coast of Lebanon in response to the hijacking of TWA Flight 847.
