As you all know we have an extensive list of F-16 units of all air forces all over the world. Although we do pretend to have them 100% complete, there are still some small gaps remaining. One of those is the 15th Test Squadron. This is a unit which we know absolutely sure it existed and operated F-16s. We just want more information about it.

We already know it was based at Hill AFB (during it's F-16 days anyways). The following patches were used, both as official one as a shoulder one.

We also have numerous pictures of F-16 79-0402 within the squadron.

We also are told that this unit had close ties with the Ogden Logistic Center and that it would be (not confirmed though) a C-130 test unit now. Allthough this is absolutely not sure. Might also be in the past.

So if anyone has more information about this squadron, please let us know. That way we can give it it's rightfull place in our unit overview.
