One-Eleven Down by Steven Hyer
Book DescriptionThe sole purpose of this book is to answer; "Why some F-111's never came home." Only lengthy research and the merging of two U.S. Air Force careers brought together a wealth of F-111 history and the ability to provide a reasonable explanation. The F-111 had a remarkable career as a tactical fighter. Its combat history was revived in the headlines following the brilliant anti-terroism strike against Libya during Operation El Dorado Canyon. Overshadowed by the Stealth Fighter, the F-111 was actually the heavy weight fighter that delivered the big punch during Desert Storm. Shortly thereafter, the F-111's career with the USAF was being drawn to a close. The final chapters of the F-111 history requires a recounting of the losses. This is that story. All 120 major accidents, 11 combat losses, and 23 heavily damaged aircraft, with the USAF, US Navy, and the RAAF are discussed. Steven Hyre and Lou Benoit have respectfully captured and presented the details, technical and tragic, covering the F-11''s 46 year career.
