Originally RAAF F-111G A8-272 was USAF SAC FB-111G 68-0272. USAF 68-0272 was retired on September 23, 1982 and sent to storage at Davis Monthan AFB, known as the “Boneyard”.

In 1992 the RAAF purchased fifteen USAF F-111s including 68-0272 that
became A8-272. The other fourteen F-111s were still in service with the USAF but 68-0272 was taken out of storage and made airworthy. 68-0272 became the only F-111 to ever fly again in an operational capacity earning the nickname “Boneyard Wrangler”.
