The 8th Tactical Fighter Squadron was stationed at Holloman AFB, New Mexico. The squadron converted from F-4s to F-15A/B’s in 1977. The 8th TFS was a training squadron with the 49 TFW (one of the three USAF F-15 training Wing’s in the 1980’s). The 8th TFS was one of the last units to operate the “old” version of the F-15A/B’s. The Black Sheep flew the last F-15 sortie on July 30th 1993, ending 16 years of Eagle operations at Holloman AFB.
I am searching for more information of the 8th FS, like squadron competition, history, photos and personal stories related to the squadron. Any information you would like to donate can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
