In the mid 80's the 5th Fighter Interceptor Squadron converted from the F-106 to the F-15 Eagle. F-15s only flew over Minot until the spring of 1988, when the 5th FIS was deactivated. F-15A #76-0020 was eventually aquired by Britain's Duxford Air Museum and, in 2009, was restored to its original 5th FIS markings.

McDonnell Douglas F-15A Eagle

Designed to meet US Air Force requirements for an air superiority fighter to replace the F-4 Phantom, the F-15 Eagle first flew on July 27, 1972. The Air Force needed a fighter that could engage long range targets, a skill the F-4 did not possess. The F-15 has a pulse-Doppler radar system, which can track small high-speed targets up to 120 nautical miles away and can lock its missile onto targets up to 50 nautical miles away. With more than 100 aerial combat victories, the F-15 is said to be one of the most successful modern fighters. It is expected to remain in service until 2025.
