33. The AF does not fly F-14s
they fly F-15s and F-16s.

The air guard would also not fly F-14s, they would also fly F-15s and 16s that have been handed down.

The F-14 is a navy plane, with two engines, two tails and wings that "swing" or move from a straight out position to a swept back position.

F-14:



F-15:
