Reg. N51EW has a long story.
Built in 1944 as P-51K-15-NT s/n 44-12840 (airframe 111-36123) and quickly converted to a F-6K (photo reconaissance). Donated to Civil Air Patrol unit in 1946. After a first private owner, ended in Victory Air Museum, Mundelein, Ilinois (USA) in the end of 1960's. Under restoration and P-51D conversion (1982-1987) then christened Montana Miss LG W. Bought by Tom Cruise in 2001 and renamed Kiss Me Kate between 2006 and 2012.
Bottom left, a desk model; several pictures hanging around the hangar ... including some F-18s.
At the Naval Air Station North Island main gate, Coronado, California, USA.
The real entrance got a gate guardian as a pole-mounted A-4 Skyhawk (the type piloted by VADM J.B. Stockdale which name adorn the gate).
Computer animation done maybe from BuNo 159623 of Naval Air Warfare Center, Point Mugu Airpark, NAWC Point Mugu, California. Weapons changed (Sparrow erased) and fictitious "Captain Pete Mitchell / Maverick" and 3 kills (symbolysing the Mig-28 scored in Top Gun) added alongside the MODEX 114.
... and another CGI as there is no more flying F-14 but those of Islamic Republic of Iran Air Force.
One in the sky and the other on the ground, both in the distance.
On an unidentified Nimitz-class aircraft carrier, most of shapes are F-18s surrounding two Sikorsky H-60 Black Hawks (2) and two wing folded Northrop Grumman E-2 Hawkeyes (1).
