F-15A MSIP Wheels

Recommended Posts

When would F-15A MSIP aircraft have got C model wheels? I actually need to know if the two Massachusetts ANG 9-11 scramblers had A or C model wheels at that time.

Thanks for your time and help with this question

Cheers

I don't know the answer to your question but one of the Mass. Guard 9-11 responders is on display at a local air museum. Not sure if you can tell by the pic. Otherwise, try a Google image search for Pacific Coast Air Museum F-15.

They would have had C model wheels by that point.

If it helps, the Mass ANG guys got our aircraft F-15As 5th F.I.S., after we shut down in the late 80s, maybe a little earlier.

This is a shot of the wheels used on one of our first aircraft during the acceptance ceremony:

It was very cold inside the hanger and outside even colder...60 below 0.
