The Boeing Company has donated a large model of an F-15E “Strike Eagle” Fighter to the Museum of Aviation which now is on permanent outdoor display near the Museum’s Eagle Building south entrance doorway. The donation is the second large model Boeing has given to the Museum for its front entrance –it donated a C-17 model last June. Officials from the Boeing Company in St. Louis, Missouri, came to the Museum April 23 to help dedicate the model and make a cash donation of $7,000 to the Museum.

The model has a six- foot wing span and sits atop a
high pole next to the south entrance to the Eagle Building. The 402d Maintenance Wing (MXW) at Robins Air Force Base provides depot maintenance and software development for the F-15 aircraft. And the Warner Robins Air Logistic Center/GRM “Eagle Division” provides worldwide support to all F-15 aircraft, both for the U.S. Air Force fleet as well as for all foreign military sales users.
