Taking a while...

Australia had ordered the F-111 for the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) in 1963. The first of the strike aircraft was made available to the RAAF in September 1968 but technical problems meant that delivery to Australia was delayed till June 1973 when the first six of twenty four were finally delivered. The planes were still in service in 2008.
