About this product
- DescriptionThis study provides historical information on the F-111D in 1979 and 1980, the time period critical to the retention of the aircraft in the Air Force inventory. It serves as a case study focusing on those responsible for the management of the F-111 system and how they retained an aircraft that appeared ready for retirement. Three research questions were addressed! 1) What maintenance and logistics factors contributed to the retention of the F-111D? 2) What management actions and operational accomplishments contributed to the retention of the F-111D? and 3) Did the F-111D fit the 'traditional' mission role of the F-111 during this period, and did this play a role in the retention issue? Research on this topic centered on the Histories of the 27th Tactical Fighter Wing, the only wing equipped with the F-111D. The historical data indicated that a supply deficit wa5 the principle logistics factor effecting the retention of the F-111D. Management initiatives by the Air Staff and the Tactical Air Command helped pin-point the reasons for the supply deficit. Following reorganization in January 1980 the 27th Tactical Fighter Wing demonstrated its maintainability and combat capability during a deployment to England in May and June 1980 which closed the retention issue. Finally, the study showed that the F-111D did t fit the traditional role of the F-111 during this time frame.
