I was a member of and discharged from 380 FMS (SAC) Plattsburgh AFB, NY. I was an A/C Hydraulic/Pneumatic Specialist. My question is: Does anyone know the specific name or brand of hydraulic fluids used in FB-111A? I can be contacted by email. Thanks for your help.

        woops ,Ithink it was 5606. 7808 was engine oil. Howerver we were told it was highly carcinneogenic(spelling?)(caused cancer)

      I don't recall the names on the cans. I do remember at least 3 different companies made the stuff. It was Mil/Std 5606.
