F-111 Aardvark on static display

Saw this bad boy on static display in Clovis, NM just outside Canon AFB. I’ll always remember what my friend Becky said about the F-111.

F-111 On Static Display

Becky is about 5 feet tall and weighs 100 lbs soaking wet, just to give you an idea of the person that said this:

“I like the F-111 because it sounds manly. It sounds like an airplane that a man flies. It has a deep, throaty sound that tells you that a man is flying this airplane to come kick your ass. An F-16, has a whiny sound, like a dainty little princess is coming over to knock your tea cups over.”

That, my friends, is what she said.
