General Dynamics F-111 Aardvark (Spring 2017)


I enjoy the military airplanes and this particular one is a true example of the proud “Cold War Warrior”.  F-111 was developed in the late 1960s as an interceptor and tactical attack aircraft. It flew first combat mission during the Vietnam conflict and adapted from the interceptor role to the exclusive attack, recon-electronic warfare and nuclear delivery aircraft.

The F-111 saw additional actions during the first Gulf War conflict and ended its service in 2010.
