The 474th TFW was the first operational wing to be equipped with the F-111 Aardvark. In early 1968, during the Vietnam War, the USAF sent a small number of F-111s to Thailand and three were lost as the result of structural defects. The defects were corrected and replacement aircraft were sent with #67-0067 and #67-0062 arriving on October 23, 1970 with others to follow. F-111 #67-0067 can be seen on display at the "National Museum of the USAF" at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio painted in 428th TFS graphics.

The General Dynamics F-111 Aardvark entered service with the US Air Force in July 1967 as a medium-range aircraft designed for interdiction and tactical strike. The F-111 was also used as a strategic bomber, reconnaissance and an electronic warfare aircraft. Some unique features of the F-111 when it was introduced included variable-geometry wings, crew seating in an escape capsule cockpit, terrain following radar and afterburning turbofan engines.


Hobby Master offers a wide selection of quality, pre-assembled, diecast model airplanes. Each model is crafted to a high level of accuracy using specifications of the original aircraft. They are constructed with precision-made diecast metal and some plastic components.
