Identify Fighter Jet in Libya Photo

Posted 03-20-2011 at 04:45 by FARSON

We were trying to identify the jet fighter shot down over Benghazi Libya Sat Mar 19. I think it looks like an F-111. Any closer ID's out there? Ha anyone heard what it was for sure?

    It was probably one of these, a Mig 27...

    I don't think we were selling F111's to Gadaffi in the 80's so much as using F111's against him...

    I could see the similarity between them, though, IIRC the F111 was much bigger.
