This is a discussion thread for the following file:<br><br><b><a href=http://www.googleearthhacks.com/dlfile20244/Wrecked-F-14.htm>Wrecked F-14</a></b><br><br>It's not actually a wrecked plane, according to a user at GEC: &quot;Actually, this is not a wreck in the sense of a crashed aircraft. This is a &quot;parts bird&quot; as the Navy calls them. When an aircraft gets too high in flight time, they turn it into parts. It is sort of a one airplane junkyard for the squadrons there. At the time this flyover was done, this aircraft probably was belonging to VF-201, who is now VFA-201 after they replaced their F-14's with F/A-18's.&quot;<br><br><img src=http://www.googleearthhacks.com/images/new/080505/849181F14.jpg>
