Ok, so the name Aardvark may not be your first choice of names for a kick butt military jet that can fly at Mach 2.5 and carry nuclear weapons but the F-111 was an incredible aircraft worth knowing more about.

Oh, and the F-111 was also famous for performing a ‘dump and burn’ which would literally light up a city at night.

Watch for yourself!

The F-111 was manufactured by General Dynamics.
