RAAF-Restored F-111C’s Tail Arrives Aboard RAAF C-17

The F-111C tail arrives aboard RAAF C-17 Globemaster.

As we wrote this morning (Click HERE), the Royal Australian Air Force, which recently had restored six of their venerable General Dynamics F-111Cs and distributed them on loan to museums around their country, is sending a seventh restored plane, gifted outright, to the Pacific Aviation Museum in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.

Burl Burlingame, curator of the Pacific Aviation Museum curator just sent us this picture:
