The F-111 was developed in the mid 1960's and first flown in 1967. The aircraft included many technological innovations including variable wing geometry, terrain following radar and after-burning engines. Several versions of the F-111 were developed and operated by the United States Air Force. The United States Air Force retired the F-111 in the late 1990.s.
This new Minicraft kit includes 2 sets of markings for USAF F-111Es. The model features position-able wings demonstrating variable wing angle, under-wing fuel tanks and position-able landing gear (posed up or down).
