General Dynamics F-111 Aardvark – Warbird Wednesday Episode #128

General Dynamics F-111 Aardvark - Warbird Wednesday

Welcome to Warbird Wednesday! Today we are visiting another strategic bomber aircraft, the General Dynamics F-111 Aardvark. The F-111 was produced in the 1960s, pioneering several technologies, including variable swept wings, afterburning turbofan engines and automated terrain-following radar. It was able to carry several bombs, as well as one nuclear weapon. In fact, it dropped 80% of the bombs in the Gulf War. Its name Aardvark was given due to its similarities to the animal, like the long nose and ground-hugging capabilities. The F-111 was retired in 1996.
