No worry you don't bother me, btw is the first time I hear about a F-111B as USN transport, did you have some reference material about that, or it only a "what if"?
 
If the second case, usually I don't like to realize "what if" concepts (there is a lot of people skillest than me about that) preferring to concentrate on real design or really designed (even if unbuilt) aircrafts and space vehicles.  :)

Thinking about Michels wishful thinking I had the idea, that after their military career some of them
could have had a second, civilian life in a Virgin Atlantic, or perhaps a Red Bull colour scheme  ...  ;D

yes, unfortunately a F-111 transport would be a WHIF that appeared on 'What if Forum' but only as sketch not as a model. don't beleive anyone has tryed that.

And so the endless circle of life comes to an end, meaningless and grim. Why did they live, and why did they die? No reason. Two hundred million years of evolution snuffed out, for in the end Nature is horrific and teaches us nothing

Archipeppe,


Fascinating design and excellent illustration.  I have never seen this aircraft before. 


Would have been very interesting to be a passenger, especially after the pilot ejects...LOL.


Happy New Year to all.

What would be the potential range for such an adaptation?
