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.

F-111A 67-0052 began service with the 429th ECS/366th TFW. 67-0052 was the last of 42 F-111As converted to EF-111As and was assigned to the 42nd ECS stationed at RAF Upper Heyford, England between July 1983 and July 1992. In April of 1986 67-0052 was one of six Ravens providing electronic countermeasures to USN aircraft during Operation El Dorado Canyon in Libya. In 1987 the aircraft was nicknamed “Cherry Bomb” after an EB-66 that had previously served with the 42nd Tactical Electronic Warfare Squadron. On April 1, 1998 67-0052 was sent to AMARC.
