128 Fighter Squadron

Eagle History

The 128th TFS was stationed at Dobbins AFB, GA. In 1986 the 116th retired the last of its Vietnam War Phantoms and received the F-15A & B models air superiority fighters. The F-15A was introduced into the inventory in the mid-1970s and now were being upgraded in the active duty by the improved F-15C. The 128th flew the F-15 for the next ten years. The 116th Tactical Fighter Wing developed an impressive record of accomplishment and was awarded nine Air Force Outstanding unit awards.

In 1995 the 128th TFS traded their F-15s for B-1B lancers.
