The General Dynamics F-111 entered service in 1967 as a medium-range aircraft designed 
for interdiction and tactical strikes. The F-111 was used as an all-weather attack aircraft 
capable of low-level penetration of enemy territory. It also could be used for reconnaissance 
and electronic warfare. Some unique features are variable geometry wings, the 2 crew 
members sat side by side in an escape capsule, internal weapons bay; terrain following radar 
and after-burning turbofans. The USAF retired their last F-111 in 1998 but the RAAF 
continued to use theirs until 2010.

The 1991 NATO Tiger meet was held at RAF Fairford and one of the 16 participants was the 
79th TFS of the 20th TFW from RAF Station Upper-Heyford, England. In 1970 the 79th TFS 
“Tigers” converted to the swing-wing F-111. This made it the first European operationally 
ready unit equipped with the F-111 as well as the first, any where in the world with the “E” 
variant. The aircraft that represented the 79th was F-111E 68-0049 c/n A/1-218 
manufactured in 1968 and painted with a feline paint scheme.
