FLYING INTO HISTORY
DENNIS ODA / DODA@STARBULLETIN.COM
An F-15A that flew for the Hawaii Air National Guard for 16 years and was retired about 11/2 years ago was offloaded by crane yesterday next to the Ford Island Ferry Pier on Ford Island and towed to Hangar 79, to be restored for its final home at the Pacific Aviation Museum at Pearl Harbor. At the turn of the century, the McDonnell Douglas F-15 Eagle was still the Air Force's premier fighter. At 2.5 times the speed of sound, the F-15 Eagle was the first U.S. fighter to be able to accelerate while in a vertical climb to 65,000 feet.
