The F-111 had its first flight in 1964, and was introduced into service in 1967.
This US fighter aircraft was designed to be a strike fighter as well as a bomber
This US military aircraft was the pioneer for some very advanced new technology, such as the variable geometry wing,
whereby the wings could either be moved forward for low speed flight, or changed to sweptback wings, for high speed flight.
So, it was one of the most advanced of the American fighter planes of its time, incorporating ground following radar and afterburners.
This American fighter aircraft is featured here as aircraft art from one of the many military aircraft photos in the form
of a digitally produced watercolor effect image.
It can be clearly seen that the wings in this instance are in the forward position.
