F-4G Wild Weasels were retired in 1994/5, and were replaced by F-16CJ and joint service EA-6B platforms.

The last USAF SR-71s were retired (the 2nd time) in 1997, and the NASA SR-71s in 1999.

The last USAF F-111Fs were retired in 1996, and the last EF-111As were retired in 1997/8. Australia still uses the F-111, and there are four dedicated recon platforms, however they are all accounted for in Australia at the moment. Their sensors are configured for low-level work rather than high altitude work. The same applies to ATARS equipped F-14s and F/A-18s - low level, high speed is their speciality.
