1974 McDonnell Douglas F-15 Eagle

The F-15A Eagle is a twin-engine, high-performance, all weather superiority fighter jet. First flown in 1972, then entered the United States Air Force for service in 1974. Its air superiority is due to its advanced avionics, range and weaponry, and unprecedented maneuverability. One person can effectively perform air-to-air combat using its advanced systems to detect, acquire, track and attack enemy aircraft. The Museum received 74-0084 in June 2008 from Air Force Base Elmendorf’s 3rd Wing, continuing their great relationship with the local community. At the end of 74-0084’s career it was a Ground Instructional Training Aircraft (GITA).
