Did alot of work with the Aussie pilots on their F-111's back in the day. Man-o-man could they drink...I could almost keep up with them...almost being the key word here.

It's a bit sad this is the fate of our F1-11's. They at least could have gone to a kids playground.

What a shame to see that.
At take-off, as soon as they got air borne it was gear up, hit the AB (after burners) rotate to 90, sweep wings back and climb straight up to 25-30K.
The hot shots would spin all the way up...it was a sight to behold.

Not a good day to be driving in NZ without an air cleaner today.

We're sending over a humungus dust cloud. Been a bit warm and dry here.
