A New Bird in the Oregon Roost:The Beginning of the Eagle Era in the 142nd Fighter Wing
An F-15A of the 123rd Fighter-Interceptor Squadron enters the alert hangar at McChord AFB in February, 1990, as the 142nd Fighter-Interceptor Group established Det 1 at McChord even as the unit’s F-15 conversion continued. Det 1 was maintained at McChord until force structure cuts closed it on 30 September 1993. (Courtesy McChord Air Museum)
