F111 over Canberra

By oddball508 - 11 December 2009 9

An F-111 strike aircraft from Number 6 Squadron, flys over the Australian Defence Force Academy on Thursday, 10 December 2009, as young graduating officers from Navy, Army and Air Force participate in their final Academy parade before continuing on the next stage of their military careers.

The aircraft will approached ADFA from the east at a height of 500 feet, and passed over the Graduation Parade at 10:20am, local time.

F-111s will be retired from the Royal Australian Air Force in December 2010 when their replacement – the F/A-18F Super Hornet – becomes operational.

Do you know if the Super Hornet can do a dump & burn?

Will never forget the F111 dump and burn at the Vietnam Vets night Concert at the AWM.

Shock & Awe! Pteradactyl hovering with a flaming ass & bone shivering roar!

Unfortunately the Super Hornet’s fuel dump valves are located high up on the vertical tailplanes; so, no dump and burn from the Superbug. 🙁

After coming all that way, I reckon it should be compulsory for them to do a few circuits of the rest of the city as well. That way we can all enjoy the show.
