RAAF F-111G A8-272 was originally USAF SAC FB-111G 68-0272. USAF 68-0272 was retired on September 23, 1982 and sent to storage at Davis Monthan AFB, known as the Boneyard. In 1992 the RAAF purchased 15 USAF F-111s including 68-0272 that became A8-272. The other 14 F-111s were still in service with the USAF but 68-0272 was taken out of storage and made airworthy. 68-0272 became the only F-111 to ever fly again in an operational capacity earning the nickname “Boneyard Wrangler”. On May 1, 2009, A8-272 was sent to the RAAF Museum at Point Cook.Opening canopy

The General Dynamics F-111 Aardvark entered service with the US Air Force in July 1967 as a medium-range aircraft designed for interdiction and tactical strike. The F-111 was also used as a strategic bomber, reconnaissance and an electronic warfare aircraft. Some unique features of the F-111 when it was introduced included variable-geometry wings, crew seating in an escape capsule cockpit, terrain following radar and afterburning turbofan engines.
