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.

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?
