Col. Keith Feaga, 33d Fighter Wing Vice Commander, celebrates the end of his career May 17 in one of the first F-15Cs he flew as a second lieutenant stationed at Bitburg Air Base, Germany, in 1985. Aircraft tail number 9049 had already been in service for six years before then-2nd Lt. Keith Feaga flew the jet. "It's a real testament to the longevity of this airframe when a pilot with more than 29 years of experience can begin and end his career in the same jet," Colonel Feaga said. The F-15C has been in service for nearly 30 years and will continue to be a part of the Air Force's inventory of legacy aircraft for the next 20 years.
