The F-111 has landed at Evans Head Memorial Aerodrome
F-111 A8-147 finally arrived at Evans on the 5th of August 2013 after a low-loader trip from RAAF Base Amberley. The truck left at 3am and came from the Qld NSW border at sunrise with a NSW Police Escort
Well the last of the F-111’s has arrived at Evans Head. Six were given on permanent loan to Museums around Australia with Evans Head being the lucky recipient for one of them.
F-111 sits on apron outside the one remaining Bellman hangar
The fuselage of the F-111 arrived without the tail or wings which were shipped on separate trucks for assembly at Evans Head
Now to put it all together.
A8-147 was a frequent visitor to Evans Head to use the RAAF’s Evans Head Weapons Range for practice.
