Royal Australian Air Force Gifts F-111C

Pacific Aviation Museum Pearl Harbor welcomed the General Dynamics F-111C jet (serial number A8-130) to its collection of vintage and high performance aircraft. A gift from the Royal Australian Air Force, the jet is one of seven airframes being released to civilian institutions, the only one being gifted outright, and the only one being given outside Australia. Pacific Aviation Museum Pearl Harbor Executive Director Kenneth DeHoff has made it one of his projects over the last three years to ensure that the Museum receives this famed aircraft upon its retirement.

The aircraft arrived at Hickam Air Field of Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam in three shipments. Members of the RAAF accompanied the fuselage on the final flight aboard a C-17 and reassembled the aircraft.

Arrival of the F-5A

A Northrop F-5A Freedom Fighter joined the collection at Pacific Aviation Museum Pearl Harbor. The F-5A was a lightweight, low maintenance, single-seat fighter designed and built by Northrop in the 1950s. Although it never became a fighter aircraft for the U.S., Northrop exported hundreds of F-5As around the world during the 1960s and 1970s to U.S. allies.

The Museum’s F-5A Freedom Fighter was donated by Chuck Thornton, president of Thornton Aircraft Company. It joins the Museum’s growing collection of 35+ historic aircraft. Shipping was provided by Matson. For more information on the history of the F-5A click here.
