Come and see the visiting RAAF F-111 this weekend at Temora Aviation Museum.
The General Dynamics F-111 is a two-seat long-range strike reconnaissance aircraft. It has a max speed of Mach 1.2 at sea level and a cruise speed of 780 km/h.
Highly controversial during its development, the F-111 is even better today than when it was introduced to the Air Force in June 1973. With numerous airframe, engine, weapons and avionics upgrades, the F-111 remains the fastest and longest ranging combat aircraft in the Asia-Pacific.
It is planned that the participating F-111 will conduct flying displays throughout the weekend and will be scheduled to fly on both Saturday and Sunday.
A special first time visitor to a Museum Flying Weekend will be Allan Arthur with his spectacular P-40 Kittyhawk. It is expected to fly on both Saturday and Sunday along with the Museum’s own historic collection with displays from the Tiger Moth, Ryan, Boomerang, 2 x Spitfires, Hudson, Meteor, Vampire and Canberra.
