Are all of the 445th jets Orange and white? Just wondering if 86-0359 is orange and white now.
Only the Coral Phoenix blk 15's are O/W ... 359, 118, and 11(swine)9 are gray.
359 had my name on it for many years and its a fine jet. 119 also has many hours flown by me and neither of them are true blk 15's. I have the history of those tails, let me know if you are interested. The 445th changed a few years back from the F-15 CTF to a support unit that does most of the support functions and contains many different tail numbers. The 416th has and is a test squadron and has combined MWS's but previously was Viper only test. I spent 7 years at Eddie and tested Vipers and Raptors there. Great place to be a test pilot. Just retired today and miss it already.
