HISTORY OF THIS AIRCRAFT

 VF-103

Vf103 insig.jpg

Fighter Squadron VF-103 Sluggers had a fine tradition in the US Navy. Establishment came on May 1st 1952, and they flew a long list of aircraft: F4U Corsair, F9F Cougar, F-8A and E Crusader, F-4J and S Phantom and F-14A and B Tomcat.

They got the only nighttime MiG kill of the Vietnam war. Flying the F-4J, LCDR Robert "Gene" Tucker and LT (jg) Stanley "Bruce" Edens shot down one MiG-21 with an AIM-7E Sparrow missile. They flew from the USS Saratoga. Date was August 10, 1972.

Aircraft 103 received a special treatment for the Christmas season of 2000, with the Skull wearing a Santa Claus hat, and with crossed candy bars replacing the crossed bones. Season's Greetings was written in white on the side of the black drop tanks. This special livery was henceforth known as the Santa Cat. My friend Brian Marbrey sent me these official VF-103 pictures of the Santa Cat at sea:
