FB-111A #68-027 was built in 1968 as C/N B1-19. In 1978 the NTM (NATO Tiger Meet) was to be held at Kleine Brogel, Belgium so 68-0247 that was assigned to the 509BW/393BS based at Pease AFB was sent to take part. In 1989 SACs F-111s were being replaced by B-1B bombers so F-111As were converted to F-111Gs. Some F-111Gs were spared from the Bone Yard and sent to the RAAF while the rest went to AMARC. In 1993 F-111G 68-0247 was the USAF’s last flying F-111G to arrive there with 5,490 flight hours.

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.
