Model Specific Information
The F-111 was until recently the backbone of the RAAF providing at full strength more than 50% of the strike capability in the existing fighter fleet.  In late 2003, the Defence bureaucracy in Canberra successfully convinced the Defence Minister that the F-111 would be too expensive to operate past 2010, and gained Federal Government approval to retire the aircraft in the 2010 timescale, after earlier unsuccessful attempts to effect a retirement in 2006.

The decision to retire the F-111 has been neither popular, nor widely accepted as necessary in the expert community. Built in the late 1960s, the F-111 is a contemporary of the US B-52H and B-1B bombers, both of which the US Air Force intends to operate well past 2030.  None of the arguments presented by Defence in Federal Parliament to justify the early retirement of the F-111 were successfully defended in the public debate, as none were truthful.

The plan for early retirement of the F-111 has resulted in a vigorous public debate in the press and the parliamentary commitee system. This website will post a selection of relevant articles, submissions and papers.
