McDonnell Douglas
F-15A Eagle

The F-15 is a twin engine, high performance, all-weather air-superiority fighter. First flown on 27 July 1972, the Eagle entered USAF inventory on 4 November 1974. It was the first U.S. fighter to have engine thrust greater than the normal weight of the aircraft, allowing it to accelerate while in a vertical climb.

Warner Robins Air Logistics Center is responsible for worldwide logistics and program support of all USAF F-15s.
