of 'Pigs Can Fly' by Doc...
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,
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.)
