oooh it made history, yes....but not in combat. It never flew against any air force who's pilots were of equal calibre. Iraq and Libya hardly count.

I guess the Tomcat's "lack" of lethality explains why they were cut into tiny pieces faster than any other modern US designed aircraft.

Josh, I'll be certain to let the Tomcat community know, that in your humble opinion, they were not flying combat missions. LOL! BTW, there are no non-NATO pilots of equal caliber.
