    Talking What's Your Favourite Aircraft?

    Mine is the F111!

    F-111

    The F-111 was a multipurpose tactical fighter bomber capable of supersonic speeds. The aircraft was one of the more controversial aircraft ever to fly, yet it achieved one of the safest operational records of any aircraft in USAF history and became a highly effective all-weather interdiction aircraft. As a result of a poorly thought-out development specification, both the Navy and Air Force had become committed, much against their will, to a civilian-inspired "Tactical Fighter Experimental" (TFX) program. This called for developing a single aircraft-the F-111-to fulfill a Navy fleet-defense interceptor requirement and an Air Force supersonic strike aircraft requirement. In retrospect, this was impossible to achieve, especially since planners placed priority upon the Air Force requirement, and then tried to tailor this heavy landplane to the constraints of carrier-based naval operations.

    A sinister product of the cold war, it is still unsurpassed by current planes in terms of pure speed.

    Retired after the cold war ended and as someone mentioned, super heavy fuel consumption thanks to it ramjet engines.

    Hey, thanks

    Too bad for the military jocks though, it's mostly commercial airliners although there is a SR-71 head shot somewhere in there.
