Yellow One RF-111 ?

Postby ixgr1 » Thu Feb 13, 2020 2:18 pm

Hey Brains trust,

I am contemplating a refurb’ of my Pig.......to a Recon ship. Minor surgery IMHO......

Question is did any RF’s wear the “Big Yellow One” tail art ?

- cheers in advance........

A8-146 did, and probably the only one, there is a photo of it on http://www.F-111.net in my digital collection, I'm currently out of space on a free hosting website, but could email the photo to you.

Edit, lets see if this works

I've seen the same picture of 146 with the yellow 1 on the tail. It's taken in England from the 50th anniversary of D-Day in 1994. 146 would have been a 6 Sqn aircraft then so I wonder if it had different flashes on each side of the fin similar to the F111's now on display. Googling came up with this, but the weather looks pretty different so no idea if the pics were taken close together or not. https://www.dhc-2.com/Weekend_Warriors.html

Oh that is cool that it seems to wear both SQN's markings there!

•The propeller is just a big fan in the front of the plane to keep the pilot cool. Want proof?
Make it stop; then watch the pilot break out into a sweat.

Doc59 and Robert,

Thanks for the comments.

I think you may be right about the two tailed (bi-polar) F-111. I even recall a dim comment about this at the 50th D-day anniversary, I cannot be sure though.
love the comments about a post strike reccie :) , and this was the configuration I was trying to justify (two birds with one stone ??). -Unfortunately, I doubt a Recon machine would ever put at risk in this way.....:( ?

So many F-111's ….so little display space ??
