The Oregon Air National Guard was established on July 30, 1940 as the 123rd Observation Squadron and ordered into active duty September 15, 1941. The Oregon ANG 173rd FW, Kingsley Field AGB, Oregon decided to celebrate the 2016 "75th Anniversary" of the Oregon ANG call to active duty so work began to decorate F-15C 79-0041 with a very complicated and unique paint scheme. The aircraft was first displayed on April 3, 2016 at a change of command ceremony. The next month 79-0041 flew to Finland for the first "Sentry Lynx" exercise.

McDonnell Douglas F-15C 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.

Hobby Masterís 1:72 scale F-15 is produced with a high metal content using state-of-the-art manufacturing techniques. The model features near seamless construction as seen on all Hobby Master products, and this is particularly evident with the tight-fitting conformal fuel tanks present on the F-15E variant. Separate open and closed canopy and speed brakes are included, yielding uncompromising detail that functional hinges would lack at this scale. Other fine features include a detailed cockpit interior, a variety of ordnance and drop tanks appropriate to the paint-scheme and landing gear that constructed as completed subassemblies for easy installation.
