The McDonnell Douglas F-15 Eagle is an American twin-engine, all-weather tactical fighter aircraft designed by McDonnell Douglas (now part of Boeing). Following reviews of proposals, the United States Air Force selected McDonnell Douglas's design in 1967 to meet the service's need for a dedicated air superiority fighter. The Eagle first flew in July 1972, and entered service in 1976. It is among the most successful modern fighters, with over 100 victories and no losses in aerial combat, with the majority of the kills by the Israeli Air Force. Primary Role: Air Superiority Fighter, Multirole Combat Aircraft.
The Oregon Air National Guard was established on July 30, 1940 as the 123rd Observation Squadron and ordered into active duty September 15, 1941. The Oregon ANG 173rd FW, Kingsley Field AGB, Oregon decided to celebrate the 2016 “75th Anniversary” of the Oregon ANG call to active duty so work began to decorate F-15C 79-0041 with a very complicated and unique paint scheme. The aircraft was first displayed on April 3, 2016 at a change of command ceremony. The next month 79-0041 flew to Finland for the first “Sentry Lynx” exercise.
