Photo Comment

The much-loved Pig made it's last Australian International Airshow appearance in 2009. This was one of three on flying and static display. Wearing 6 Squadron markings, this aircraft was delivered to the RAAF on 1 June 1973. It was the first of four later converted to RF-111C standard - you can see the camera fairing where the bomb-bay used to be.
