Restored F-111 Libyan Raid Veteran to be Unveiled in June

The Aviation Heritage Park will soon unveil its latest aircraft restoration and hopes to get the go-ahead to bring its next project to Bowling Green, Ky. The most recently completed restoration, a General Dynamics F-111F Aardvark that served in Operation El Dorado Canyon and restorers have nicknamed “Warhorse,” will be unveiled to the public at the park’s annual hangar party June 15.

Members of the park’s board of directors spoke with the Daily News Editorial Board this week. Board members hope to be able to transport the next airplane the group wants to work on – a Northrop T-38 Talon jet used to train astronauts, including Russellville native and Western Kentucky University graduate Terry Wilcutt – to Bowling Green soon.

“We really wanted some way to honor his remarkable career, and the T-38 was the logical choice,” said Dan Cherry, a member of the Aviation Heritage Park board.
