An F-14 at NASA Ames in 1979, for an airshow that took place while I was out there.

Another view of the F-14 at NASA Ames. What's particularly interesting in this view is that you can see a minor flaw in the paint detailing for the unit markings. If you look at the nose of the aircraft, in the previous picture, you can see a side view of the shark mouth and eye painted on the radar dome. If you look at the nose-on view in this image, you can see that the port eye is aft of, and above, the starboard eye! I wonder if the unit knew that the markings were lopsided at the time!
Really beautiful picture of this wonderful plane! Your archives are great and they are full of colourful pictures from classic (nowadays) aircraft with high visibility markings! A joy to llok at!

Thanks. I've been lucky to work and live in areas where these planes either were built or took part in local airshows. I'm also old enough to have been around when these planes were still flying! I don't know if that's good or bad!

Yes you're lucky and I think it is good thing to be old enough to have archives of planes that are no longer in service. There are too many photos of current aircraft in social media nowadays and not enough from previous generations aircraft

That satellite plate on the background creates the optical illusion of the canopy being open while the f-15 is landing

I also grew up a little over a mile from the end of Grumman's runway and saw most of Grumman's aircraft flying overhead daily. Consequently, I developed an interest in airplanes and then had the pleasure of working for Grumman (and then Northrop Grumman) for 37 years, which kept me close to these aircraft.

If you look closely at the picture of the F-15, to the right of that satellite dish, you can see that the large speed brake on the back of the F-15 is open to aid the aircraft in decelerating after touchdown.
