This aircraft broke on a cross-country trip when the #1 engine would'nt start. The crew came back to Lakenheath and on after a weekend I drove avan up to Bentwaters with an Electrican, crew chief and myself-oh yea and the crew and i guess his wing man. The electrician found a broke ground wire but it still did'nt start so I changed that big old cart. pneu. starter.We launched both birds out and made damn sure they did'nt have any problems before leaving Bentwaters. Got back to the Heath driving thru the entry control point and who's taxing in but 396-still see the smile and wave from the pilot.[circa 1981]Good memories.

MOST OF THE F MODELS WERE INITIALLY PUT INTO ACTIVE SERVICE AT MOUNTAIN HOME AIR FORCE BASE IN THE EARLY 70'S. IT WAS THE HOME FOR THE 366 TFW, "THE GUNFIGHTERS". WHEN I ARRIVED WE DID NOT HAVE FUNCTIONAL GUNS HOWEVER! THE RETREAT DOOR WAS GETTING SHOT OUT, TIMING! WE DID A LOT OF NIGHT FLYING AND AS I WAS IN THE WEAPONS RELEASE SHOP PROBABLY WORKED ON OR TESTED THE SYSTEMS ON ALMOST ALL OF THE THE ARDVARKS LISTED AT AMARC. I GOT OUT IN OCTOBER OF 1977 AND THE F111F'S LEFT A COUPLE OF YEARS LATER FOR OTHER UNITS AND PARTS OF THE WORLD TO TAKE THE PLACE OF OTHER AGING AND LESS CAPABLE FIGHTER/BOMBER TYPES OF A/C.
