Having been stationed in England 84-87 and talking to a few F111 pilots at Upper Heyford, I've been told off the record that it was actually the fastest fighter or fighter bomber in a straight out run in the AF inventory. But not anywhere near the best as it didn't like to turn. I was given the top reported speed and it verifies what others have posted.
