Post 144th TFW of CA ANG Re-Equipping with F-15s!
The local California Air National Guard 144th Tactical Fighter Wing, based in my hometown of Fresno, CA, is starting to re-equip with F-15s! They've flown F-16s since 1989 and flew F-4 Phantoms before that. There had been some budgetary discussions about the future of the base, however, it was saved thanks to lobbying efforts by local politicians and the community. Now they get "new" planes.

Here's an article and video covering the transition from our local newspaper: http://www.fresnobee.com/2013/06/18/334 ... no-is.html

Looking forward to seeing a new jet over town and can't wait to see what the new tail-flash will look like.
