  • The Red Rippers were commissioned in 1927 as VF-5S in the earliest days of Naval Aviation and are proud to be the Navy’s oldest continuously active fighter squadron. The Rippers began their distinguished heritage in Hampton Roads, Virginia flying the Curtiss F6C-3 HAWK. They served in both theaters of World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, and in Operations PROVIDE COMFORT, SOUTHERN WATCH, OPERATION ENDURING FREEDOM, and OPERATION IRAQI FREEDOM. From the decks of the USS LANGLEY (CV-1), America’s first carrier, to the USS HARRY S. TRUMAN (CVN-75), the Red Rippers have been indelibly written into the history of Naval Aviation.
  • The Rippers transitioned to the F-14A TOMCAT in 1980 and made their first TOMCAT cruise aboard USS JOHN F. KENNEDY (CV-67) in 1982. On 30 May 1991, the Rippers made their final deployment with Carrier Air Wing SIX, flying from the flight deck of USS FORRESTAL in support of Operation PROVIDE COMFORT in Northern Iraq.
  • On September 11, 2001 in response to the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and in Pennsylvania, Fighter Squadron ELEVEN was called to action to provide homeland and coastal defense. In February of 2002 the Rippers deployed aboard USS JOHN F KENNEDY (CV-67) in support of Operation ENDURING FREEDOM. The squadron played an instrumental role in the Global War on Terrorism by providing airborne support for coalition troops. On April 20, 2005, VF-11 delivered the last of their F-14s to the “boneyard” at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base in Tucson, Arizona.
