Virtavia has announced the release of F-111 Aardvark for FSX.  F-111 Aardvark is a swing-wing fighter / bomber with five main variants and eleven unique stores load outs. The five variants are FB-111A, F-111E, F-111F, F-111G and EF-111A Raven. Each variant features a wide range of features and a different cockpit.

The F-111 is an advanced design that uses variable geometry airfoil or "swing wing". The aircraft went through many changes and improvements over the years. The aircraft was an outstanding long-range interdictor of the 1980s. Fuel-economic turbofan engines power the aircraft.

Question...the Virtavia web site indicates that their F-111 is for FSX, but when you link to one of the stores that sell it, they say only for FS2004. I would hate to spend $40 and then find out it won't on my FSX.

We haven't linked to any stores from this article. What store are you trying?

I would love to have the option of changing the side patch to "Red Devils" from 431 TES McClellan AFB. See facebook 431 TES McClellan AFB.
