One of the reason I visited Ipswich Art Gallery was my curiosity on this exhibition honouring the RAAF’s 37 years-serving fighter. Back when I was in Singapore, such exhibition only takes place at the Singapore Air Show (which I had never attended before). And talking about my hometown, I think they have their own definition for ‘art’.
But all those photos were taken by yours truly (now I’m sounding like George Negus) in the main area. The itchier, scratchier (this blog and its author have no relation with Itchy & Scratchy) part of the exhibition was located inside a dedicated room. In front of the room, there were 20 (or was it 25?) photographs by the Queensland Times photographers. As yours truly walked down the corridor, opening the glass door into the exhibition room… a diecast of the F-111 was put up.
But it seems yours truly missed out the uniform worn by pilots of the fighter. Though, he managed to notice a quirky kind of instruction in the uniform.
Start here (presuming it is Amberley Air Base) then put the bombs there (why Tasmania?) and avoid South Australia. Hmm, any guess why is that so? Yours truly does not know the answer either (if you know, put a comment and it’s free).
The following pictures are some of the components of the F-111.
And just before I leave you, here’s a look back at the entrance.
And of course, the Super Hornet is now replacing the long-serving fighter.
That’s all for me for now. Hopefully there is free wi-fi connection at State Library of Western Australia or at Perth International Airport. I will be crossing across the continent tomorrow. Have a nice day.
