111s To Be Governed At least 10 of the planes, with an average of 6.
2 million kilometres on the clock, will be available for sale by tender, with the RAAF keeping up to seven, and four others to be destroyed. Of the fleet of 21 F 111s, the RAAF will retain four planes to go on display around the country, with up to three more being retained behind the scenes to preserve military heritage. The F 111s ray ban mens have been based at RAAF Base Amberley four almost four decades, but residents west of Brisbane who have become accustomed to the planes overhead can take heart. Two will remain at the base on public display and should be in place next year, said a defence spokesman. Another one will be on display at the RAAF Base Edinburgh in Adelaide, while one will be on display at the RAAF Museum in Point Cook, Victoria. Ipswich Mayor Paul Pisasale, one of the lucky few to have been taken for a joy ride in an F 111, said it was important to keep a reminder of the aircraft that had ingrained itself into the city. "It's more than the plane," he said. "RAAF Base Amberley and the crew are part ray ban sunglasses discount of the Ipswich family. "Those people go on deployment, they get posted and it's about time new ray ban lenses people started to respect defence families." Anyone looking to snap up a bargain will have to take into account more than just the high mileage on the ageing planes. The United States government imposes strict regulations on the demilitarisation of planes it sells to allies, meaning anyone who picks up a second hand F 111 will also pick up the bill for work the RAAF will do to meet these demands. A defence spokesman wouldn't put an asking price on the planes, saying only that it would need to be enough to cover the RAAF's costs. "The minimum price would be the amount required to recover the cost of demilitarisation to United States Government requirements, and the cost to make the aircraft safe for public display, involving the removal and treatment of hazardous materials," he said in a statement. "This work would need to be undertaken or contracted by Defence. Other costs and arrangements, such as transport, insurance, etc, would be the responsibility of the recipient." And he said prospective buyers hoping to take their new toys for a spin would be disappointed, with no flyable aircraft being made available for public sale. "Aircraft that are fit for purpose will be offered for sale by tender for use as static displays," he said.
"This will be subject to the recipients meeting relevant laws relating to hazardous substances and International Traffic in Arms regulations. "F 111 aircraft are subject to International Traffic in Arms Regulations, ray ban ray ban which place significant restrictions on how military equipment purchased from the United States can be re used, transferred or even destroyed.".
