FSX Version of Mike Stone’s F-111C as a FB-111A

To use the Terrain Following Radar:
Select an altitude above the ground you would like to fly.
Click the Terrain Follow indicator light above RADAR altimeter.
Click the autopilot altitude hold button ( autopilot must be engaged first ).
Note: The lower you are and the faster you go, the more likely you are to crash as this is a very basic TFR. It is fun to fly so give it a try!
I would like to thank Mike Stone for the use of his gauges.
I would like to thank Eric "Aeyes" de Best for the use of his bitmaps and allowing me to modify them. They gave me a great place to start.
