NELLIS AIR FORCE BASE, Nev. —
The end of an era is upon Nellis Air Force Base. The installation geared up to bid farewell to the F-15C Eagle as the aircraft prepared to depart for the last time. On March 16, one of the last few F-15Cs departed to its final active flying unit, Eglin Air Force Base, Florida.
Back in December 2020, it was announced that the last cadre of F-15C students and instructors flew their final defensive counter-air mission for the United States Air Force Weapons School.
