Museum of Flight
The Museum of Flight has been given the extremely unique opportunity by the National Naval Aviation Museum to bring one of the last surviving Tomcats to our museum. It is a very exciting prospect to host and display Georgia’s ONLY Tomcat, a living relic that tells the story of brave men and women who have flown them in defense of our great nation.
However, fees for the transport of the aircraft have been quoted at $40,000! With a price this steep the museum feared that it might crush our chance at homing such a spectacular craft.
Yet, the end is not nigh. Director, Christine Lewis, contacted the F-14 Tomcat Association. The Association offered to publish our GoFundMe (https://www.gofundme.com/museum-of-flight-f14-tomcat) in their newsletter, website, and on their Facebook page. They also offered their expertise and to help guide us along the way. Although this process may be long-term, our members have made the impossible possible before.
We look forward to one day having the Tomcat as our own and will use this goal to help push us to make it happen. A big thanks goes out to the National Naval Aviation Museum and the F-14 Tomcat Association.
