Description
By Neubeck. The F-111 Aardvark was the first production aircraft
to feature a variable swept-wing. This aircraft?s original design
met 2 different mission roles for the US military. The Air Force
needed a joint-service aircraft while the Navy needed a
carrier-based aircraft. Among the construction proposals, General
Dynamics won the contract to build the Air Force version that
would become the F-111. Amidst much controversy during its early
stages, the Aardvark developed into an indispensable aircraft. It
served in Vietnam, Libya, and Operation Desert Storm. Currently,
the Royal Australian Air Force continues to fly the C-model
plane, and the aircraft has one of the best safety records in the
Air Force inventory. Features 12 color profiles, 3-view
illustration, line drawings, and over 200 color and 21 b/w
photos. This book is a must-have for any aviation enthusiast; 80
pages.
