Memorial to welcome RF-111C aircraft into National Collection

The Australian War Memorial can confirm a Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) RF-111C aircraft currently at the South Australian Aviation Museum will be transferred to the Memorial’s collection. 

Aircraft A8‑134 is the sole surviving RF-111C that participated in missions over East Timor and has the greatest operational provenance of the preserved Australian F-111 fleet.
