Sad end a great aircraft that served Australia so well. The F111

Article about: by big ned There is a cracking example of the F-111F in the museum at RAF Cosford down the road from me (entry is free!). It's a beast of an aircraft, our example came from Lakenheath, here'

    I speant 3 months at Davis Monthan AFB in 2008, loved every minute of it. Went around the bone yard and got some photos of all the Aircraft lined up, I even got a photo of an old Airforce 1 parked up. Tucson has to be my all time favourite place to visit in the States, much more enjoyable than Nellis AFB in Vegas.

    I think the news article mentioned the Aussie Government were asking for museums and groups to submit requests if they would like a F111 loaned to them.

    In 1966 just before the f111 entered service, they did it's hot
    weather testing at the Marine Corp air station in Yuma Az.

    I was 10 years old and would ride my bike out past the runway.
    It would sit out there in the 110º + degree heat with 4 guards with
    m16s standing post. I always felt sorry for those standing out
    in that blistering heat.

    I might still have some pictures of that, I'll have to do some digging
    and see if I can locate them.

    myself around.
