REPORTER: Howard K. Smith
(Nellis AFB, NV) Evaluation flight made by reporter, and Major Bob McKelvey. Takeoff shown. Heaviest tactical bomber in Air Force history. F-111 demonstrates how bombing hit could be successful, especially at escaping radar. F-111 still short on power and uses too much fuel. Plane could have been so much more.
