I noted in several reports the RAAF has decided to bury their F-111s rather than scrap the aircraft. Moreover the reason for this action was the aircraft have asbestos and was deemed more economical to bury.

A SAD day for a proud bird!

Sad indeed to see the old birds go. I hope they keep a few around in museums. Not sure about their reasoning, but either way they are gone.
