The EF-111 thinks the EA-18G loiter time is cute.

EF-111 - Range: 3,565 miles (3,100 nautical miles) with external fuel tanks.  Up to four nuclear bombs on four pivoting wing pylons, and two in internal weapons bay. Wing pylons carry total external load of 25,000 pounds (11,250 kilograms) of bombs, rockets, missiles, or fuel tanks.

Why would an ECM jamming plane carry nuclear devices?
Also, the while the EF-111 was damn good, its generators couldn't output enough electricity to power the jamming equipment like the EA-6 Prowler did.
Prowlers put out a LOT of jamming power.

+1. Plus, if you zoom in on the cockpit, you can see the crew's thick-rimmed plastic glasses and pocket protectors.

One stop shopping.  Makes a lot of sense from a non-pilot viewpoint.  Jam your way to the target.  You ain't coming home anyhow.

Is that Mt. Rainier in the background?  Maybe Mt. Hood?

Great photo.  I wonder if they had a time-to-target counter for that?
