Welcome to the Aardvarks Ravens & Pigs website. The main objective is to get the full history of the F-111 out of my computer for the world to see. 25 years of researching the F-111 resulted in a very significant archive with many rare historical files. Doing everything in a digital format enables the full history to be told. A daunting amount of very rare historical files has taken many years to correlate into the hundreds of pages on each & every airworthy F-111.

Many pages have been proof read by those directly involved in mishaps & other events involving individual aircraft from the 1960s through to 2010. Speaking to a website design made me realise the appealing options available. On this website you can choose all the files of interest to you.

Piracy of the website & was a real concern, so files of interest will only be available to view in a member’s folder online (no download option).
