'Pigs Can Fly!'

Mac Millan Films in association with Thistle Pictures has completed filming and production of an hour long documentary about the Australian F-111 which aired on the Australian Channel Seven network (Frank Warrick's World Around Us) on 6 June 1998. The film is dedicated to the seven RAAF and one USAF aircrew who have died in RAAF F-111 aircraft over the last 25 years. *see webmaster's note below.

A great deal of air to air and ground to air footage was taken for the production which was technically assisted by the staff of 82 Wing Photographic Services.

Copies of 'Pigs Can Fly' can be purchased from Mac Millan Films for $AUD 39.95 (about $USD 25) by visiting their web site. Postage charges in Australia are $4.50, and overseas will have to be individually calculated. Both PAL and NTSC format will be available.

Review of 'Pigs Can Fly' by Doc...

A very simple review...I have 900-1000 hours of F-111 video....(a 30 year span) covering Vietnam F-111A BDA footage through the EF-111A retirement....this video is insightful, tearful and expressive....for who I saw in it, what the RAAF is accomplishing, all Damn worthy!...An absolute "Must Have" for any Vark Buff  I Didn't say much, but this Video comes with a "Doc" says..."get It period!" or you missed a big chunk of Vark history..and I'm impressed and watched it twice the first night. The best bit was that long line of "Elephant Walk" Mighty Varks.....a sight, a memory.

(webmaster's note: A central character in the video is Anthony "Shorty" Short, who died with Stephen "Nige" Hobbs a year after the film was released in the tragic loss of F-111G A8-291 in SEA April 1999.)

KENW-TV (New Mexico) produced two stories about the retirement af the F-111F from Cannon AFB.
Both stories are available on the one tape and run for about 30 minutes all up.

The tape is available for $USD 10 plus $USD 2.50 handling and postage from

Make checks out to KENW-TV.
Note that international orders would probably be more expensive for postage, and that it is in VHS NTSC format.

AVI produces a PAL video comprising of a lot of GD and older RAAF clips. The tape runs for 60 mins, and includes Pave Tack footage from F-111F 71-893 releasing the MK-82 AIR on the Soviet built transport aircraft. I don't know if this tape was released outside Australia.
