The way the radar people explained to me is since most of the dome is black, it would be the most likely to have snow melt off of it, so they have those facing out to the side so the snow that falls off doesn't land on the jet. During non winter months, its the other way around so repair/maint crews have easier access to the internals.

The rotodome does rotate, only when the radar is operational.

That picture of the NATO AWACS with the Sentry Cournty behind at the hanger would be at the south ramp of Tinker AFB by the Rapid Alert Center iirc. This would be after sept 11th when we had help from NATO patroling Washington and NYC during Operation Noble Eagle when we had US AWACS over Afgainstan in Operation Enduring Freedom


I'm gonna go ahead and call on part of your post.

The dome rotates during engine start up and rotates until engine cutoff at landing (albiet at idle speed).

It also rotates during IFF maintenance on the ground. IFF != Radar

I'm afraid that the dome rotates more than just when the radar is active.

The Tomcat adapted extremely well to the long-range strike fighter role, but Dick Cheney canned the F-14 program in the early 1990s. An advanced F-14 strike variant would have been superior to the Super Horror, but that's not to be.

Maintenance costs are high, but a lot of that is due to the fact that no new F-14 airframes were built after the early 1990s.

AWACs give the USAF/USN a huge advantage over any opposing force.

I guess that I was close in a sense.
