And let’s not forget the TFX multi-force fighter boondoggle.
Waaaaaaay too heavy for carrier use.

Finally turned into the F-111.

It was his baby and mess.

My Father was the crew chief in RVN for several F-111's. They had an Edsel grille hung over the maintenance area.

Agent Orange was destroyed by the US Government and Dupont in August 1974 on an incinerator ship off the coast of Mississippi. The Orange was offloaded to the ship at Gulfport. There were over 20 freight cars on the railroad full of the drums that went onto the ship for incineration.
