Just to correct one minor detail in the poll section, the 5th FIS was not under the command of the A.D.C. when they flew F-15s, or for that matter whenthey were flying F-106s near the transition to eagles. They were assigned to to an air division in A.D.T.A.C. Air Defense, Tactical Air Command.

I know if may not seem like an important thing to some, but for two years it was my squadron. Frozen most of the time, but still my squadron.

Thanks for the info,learn something new everyday!

Unit pride is something I remember from my Army days.

5 FIS is on my to-do list,the markings are some of the best i've seen.

This is the start of a number of Eagle builds,with Afterburner releasing the LN Strikes soon,I'm gonna be busy building a few for some folks at Lakenheath.My next fighter version will be a BT coded Co jet with the SkyBlazers scheme from the mid-Eighties,if I can find any decent references.

Thanks for looking,comments most welcome. :thumbsup:
