Collectable Model Airplanes of the F-111 Aardvark,
The F-111 is the first swing wing jet fighter made
in production. There were a lot of problems with the swing wing design
but it allowed the aircraft to operate over a wide range of airspeeds .
The Aardvark was a large plane for the fighter designation but it was really
used for a high speed bomber. This plane is still in use today in
small numbers. Later swing wing fighter jet aircraft such as the F-14 Tomcat
have gained greater fame and respect and this plane is still called the
Fleet Defender in the US Navy. These fighter jets model
airplanes come in plastic model kits, wood kits, die cast models and mahogany

Grumman Navy F-111B Swing WingNaval Fighters Vol. 41
Thomason. Merged by the defense department into a single program, both U.S. Navy and Air Force tactical fighter requirements resulted in a grinding seven-year battle to produce an aircraft sufficient for both needs. The result was the very successful F-111. 82 pgs., 180 photos of the plane in action and of its systems, and many detailed drawings. 8"x 11", sfbd.

|Contrails Over the Mojave
The Golden Age of Jet Flight Testing at Edwards Air Force Base
Marrett. This book chronicles the author's experiences at the Air Force Test Pilot School at Edwards Air Force Base in the 1960s, which was a true golden age of flight testing.
You'll feel like you're strapped into the cockpit with the test pilots as you go vertical in a T-38 Talon, complete high-G maneuvers in an F-4C Phantom, conduct wet-runway landing tests in the accident-prone F-111A Aardvark, set world speed records in the YF-12 Blackbird, test speed stalls in the SR-71 spy plane, witness a UFO in the night sky above the Mojave Desert, and much more. 272 pages, 37 B&W photographs, 6"x 9", hardcover.
The end of the Cold War created a golden opportunity for reducing the defense burden and providing taxpayers with a "Peace Dividend." For the United States Air Force, this resulted in drastic reductions: 23% in aircraft inventory, 30% in personnel, and 32% in the number of bases and other major installations. Well-known and long-serving aircraft, such as the A-7D/K, the B-52G, the F-4C/D/E, the F-111A/D, the FB-111A and the SR-71, have been withdrawn from active and reserve components, and some states, such as California, have lost nearly half of their Air Force bases. Illustrated with over 410 color photographs, this new book provides a rich pictorial record of aircraft (including old and new markings) and units which no longer exist, and offers a visual chronicle of organizational changes between 1988-1995. 144 pages, 8" x 11", hardcover.

Historical Study Notes for the F-117 Aardvark Jet Fighter
The F-111 Aardvark flew 4000 combat missions during the Vietnam War, struck
Libya in 1986, and saw action during Operation Desert Storm. Originally designed
as a medium-range fighter-bomber, the versatile aircraft proved its meddle as a
strategic bomber, tactical strike aircraft, and reconnaissance platform. When it
debuted in 1964, the F-111 ushered in a new era. Equipped with variable-geometry
wings, afterburning turbofan engines, and terrain-following radar, the high-tech
F-111 was truly groundbreaking.

Date: Thursday, February 19, 2009, 1:51 PM David, I was hired by General Dynamics for one purpose. I had just got out of the Air Force, had been Thru several aircraft schools as top student. My next door neighbor worked at General Dynamics. The day after I was discharged General Dynamics. called me to come out and have breakfast with them. I told them over the phone that I had no desire to go to work for them but I did go out for breakfast with them. By noon I was working for them. I found out later My next door neighbor was over research and development of the F-111 program.
Ship number 14 was the First Article Inspection Aircraft. It had to be accepted by the Air Force for General Dynamics. to get the contract for production. The Air Force had turned back all F-111s prior to 14. I inspected all parts and sub assemblies of 14. That was my job... The Air force accepted ship 14 with very few squawks. I was then transferred to Vendor Quality Control.. After a brief training I was given about 20 contractors to inspect their quality production.
One of the suppliers was Anadite Corp. They put the plating and paint on the wing pivot box. They wanted to put the trailer for it in an outside area for me to inspect their work. I would arrive there early of a morning. The sun would be shinning on the box. I started noticing shiny spots on the surface. After a close look I detected these areas had been ground and polished. That to me meant weld repairs. The records with the box did not indicate any weld repairs. I would then call into the plant, tell my boss, Jim Townley what I had found. He would tell me that he would go to receiving inspection to look at the records there and for me to call back in an hour or so. When I would call back he would tell be that a weld repair was in the records authorizing the repair. I would sign off on the plating and paint. Later he was found accepting money from the company (Selb Mfg) for allowing this to happen. All of the inspectors except me had to go to Walnut Ridge AR. to fill in as in house inspection. The other guys were pissed because I was never sent there.
Townley knew that I would find out what was going on and stop it.. I am sorry but the serial numbers have been lost years ago along with my notes. General Dynamics. did not like the idea that I was dating a lady that worked for a contractor so I resigned....Leland Cook

The final inspection of the crew module handle after assembly was an x-ray. Their x-ray tech was suppose to wear glasses to correct vision to 20/20. I pulled his eye test. I never saw him use glasses. I pulled 6 x-ray sheets at random, 3 of them showed loose hardware inside of them, washers etc. I told this to the in house McDonald Quality Rep. Also suggested to him that McDonald issue a Flight Safety Technical Order to re-x-ray all handles installed on aircraft. The next day I was "locked out " of the company. Weldon Peacock, our Quality Rep at Mc Donald confirmed all of my findings. I don't know if any thing was later done at McDonald in regards to a Tech. Order recall. Leland B. Cook
