After over 2 years of effort, the Washington County Veterans Association has succeeded in obtaining the last F-111A aircraft in the Air Force inventory. Representatives from the Veterans Association and the City of Brenham signed documents today (Tuesday) securing the aircraft. It will go on permanent display in Henderson Park in Brenham. The Vietnam era fighter/bomber will be on permanent loan from the U.S. Air Force Museum in Dayton Ohio.
The aircraft is currently in Nevada and needs to be restored before it is put on display. Several local companies as well as individuals have donated funds toward the restoration. Those wishing to participate are asked to contact Don Holley at 830-3980, Joe Barham at 337-4640 or any member of the Washington County Veterans Association. The aircraft is expected to arrive from Nevada by the end of September.
