I was a crew chief at Lakenheath from '84-'87 and have worked on this aircraft. The thing I remember most about this plane was it's nickname, Crippled Whore. It was broke all the time

I was enlisted Air Force, from Nov 1975 to Jan 1980. I worked C-shop flight line avionics, Communications, Navigation, and ECM systems, on F-111A models at Nellis AFB from April 1976-June 1977, went to RAF Lakenheath from June 1977 to June 1979 worked on F-111F, then went back to Mountain Home AFB to work on F-111As again. I took pictures of several F-111s over the years in service and afterwards. One in particular was tail number 72-1444 which I took two pictures of, one on approach at RAF Lakenheath, the other from a KC135 on a refueling mission over England.

I remember this tail number because it diverted into Ramstein with compressor stalls and aroll back on #2 engine. A crew chief, an electrician, and myself changed the engine in the wash rack of all places. It was a nice tdy.[circa 1982]Shortly before I left Lakenheath around a year later it was tied down on the sound suppressor and during the engine run the #1 engine failed throwing a blade into the fuel tank-ah, well there was a pretty big fire.
