  • RAAF to declare new F-111 missile operational shortly

    News | 09 Aug 2005 00:00

    <P>The Royal Australian Air Force will soon declare the Rafael AGM-142 Raptor air-ground missile operational. Two launch tests in July using a General Dynamics F-111 Aardvark were successful, and two more tests are scheduled in October. Clearing the test phase allows the Israeli missile to become the main air-ground system of the upgraded fighters. </P> <P>Rafael supplied the missiles in 2000, but wing fatigue problems on the F-111 delayed aircraft integration. Some of the missiles delivered to the RAAF are armed with blast-fragmentation warheads and others with penetration warheads. The Raptor is the advanced version of the AGM-142 Popeye, the result of a product enhancement programme (PEP). The missiles are fitted with an 8-12µ thermal-imaging seeker that has selectable wide and narrow field of view (FOV) modes. Wide FOV is used to acquire the target and narrow FOV for the terminal phase.</P>http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/RAAF-to-declare-new-F-111-missile-operational-shortly-200748/

    Famed as the 'boneyard', the Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Centre seeks a more dynamic image <p>Richard Scott/TUCSON</p> <p>Everybody in Tucson knows the "boneyard". Sprawling across 6,400ha (2,600 acres) of desert on a site adjacent to Davis-Monthan Air Force Base (AFB), it is host to almost 4,600 military aircraft held in open storage for the US Department of Defense (DoD) and other US Government agencies. </p> <p>Visitors to the Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Center (AMARC), the facility's correct name, are greeted with the awesome, if somewhat eerie, sight of row upon row of aircraft put out to grass under the baking Arizona sun. Think of an aircraft in the inventory of the US armed services over the last 30 years, and chances are it is here. </p> <p>AMARC is also a place of pilgrimage for aviation enthusiasts from around the world. The Davis-Monthan AFB website even includes a listing of every aircraft by location, type and serial number so that former aircrehttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Home-on-the-range-123988/
