F-15 to be displayed at airport

VALPARAISO, Fla. – An F-15 from the 33rd Fighter Wing at Eglin Air Force Base will go on permanent display at the Northwest Florida Regional Airport. The plane was transported Monday and will be part of a display, expected to be completed in August, honoring the military. Another Eglin F-15 was sent to Mobile, Ala., where it will be part of the USS Alabama Battleship Memorial Park. The F-15s are being phased out at Eglin and replaced by F-35s.
