Hobby Master 1:72 Air Power Series Diecast Model

General Dynamics F-111F Aardvark 73-0715, 523rd TFS "Crusaders", USAF, RAF Fairford, England, 1995, "Central Enterprise 95"

1:72 Scale.  Length: 12.25".  Wingspan (spread): 10.5



Limited production of approximately 500 models worldwide


General Dynamics F-111F Aardvark 73-0715 was delivered to the Flight Test Center and OT&E (operational test and evaluation) unit in 1973. In December 1979 the aircraft lost the nose wheel and circled to land. The pilot was told to go around but the tail hook caught the wire slamming the aircraft to the ground. One year later 73-0715 took part in Operation Desert Shield where a KC-135 punched a hole in it. June 1995 the 523rd TFS "Crusaders" deployed eight F-111F's to RAF Fairford in England for Exercise "Central Enterprise". In October 1995 73-0715 went to the Bone Yard and was scrapped.

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.
