At number one in the countdown of our most iconic aircraft, it’s the one you’ve all been waiting for: the General Dynamics F-111C.
Arriving in Australia in 1973, the ‘Pig’ was the fastest aircraft we have ever operated.
Its innovated swing-wing design allowed it to fly at a top speed of Mach 2.5, or two and a half times the speed of sound.
A favourite at air displays for decades until its retirement in 2010, it doesn’t get more iconic than an F-111 dump and burn.
Did you get to see the F-111 in action?
