    F-111F Aardvark 48th TFW "Statue of Liberty Wing," RAF Lakenheath, 1991 (1:72) by Hobby Master Diecast Airplanes
    Item Number: HA3007

    The General Dynamics F-111 Aardvark entered service in 1967 as a medium-range aircraft designed for interdiction and tactical strikes. The F-111 was used as an all-weather attack aircraft capable of low-level penetration of enemy territory. It also could be used for reconnaissance and electronic warfare. Some unique features are variable geometry wings, the 2 crew members sat side by side in an escape capsule, internal weapons bay, terrain following radar and afterburning turbofans. The USAF retired their last F-111 in 1998.

    On July 8, 1958 the 48th BG(light) became the 48th TFW. They were known as the Liberty Wing and in 1986 F-111F 70-2390 Miss Liberty II was the lead F-111 in Operation El Dorado Canyon. This was retaliation for a Libyan sponsored bombing of a Berlin night club that killed 1 U.S. Serviceman and a civilian also injuring 200 others of which 63 were U.S.
    Military personnel. 70-2390 flew with the call-sign Remit 31. The 48th TFW F-111s were operational from March 1, 1977 until November 1991.
