F-15 Eagles reach 35 years of service at Kadena
A U.S. Air Force F-15C Eagle refuels from a 909th Air Refueling Squadron KC-135 Stratotanker over the ocean late at night Sept. 16, 2014. Sept. 29, 2014, marks the 35th anniversary of the F-15C's arrival to Kadena. At Kadena alone, the F-15C/D squadrons, the 67th, 44th and formerly 12th Fighter Squadrons, have earned the title of best Air Force fighter squadron of the year and the prestigious Raytheon Trophy, formerly the Hughes Trophy, nine times since the aircraft's arrival 35 years ago.
