He could. He wouldn't fly straight and level for long.

yeah, and he would probably land pretty nose first if he did.

No he wouldn't. The glide aspect ratio is for every 1 mile up you will glide 14 miles. That's a pretty common misconception like with helicopters.

But the F-111 is better at the strategic bomber role than fighter.

Must suck at both, seeing as Australia is the only country that uses them now.

most people poo-poo the performance of the ardvark (F-111). I know quite a few went into the bay off ft walton beach. But after they got the bugs worked out, it became a very fearsome machine indeed.

Im very glad the Aussies have a few still flying. Its actually a very good low level tactical bomber.

of course, with a varible geomtry wing, they might be able to stretch out that glide even more.
