This beautiful shot was going to be the Friday Foto today until we realized this was a static display of a retired F-15. However, it’s still a nice photo, so here it is. This McDonnell Douglas F-15 Eagle resides at Heritage Park near U.S. Air Force 3rd Wing headquarters. We see it here just as the sub-arctic dawn breaks over Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson in Alaska.

The 3rd Wing flies the Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor stealth fighter as well as the Boeing C-17 Globemaster III heavy lift and the Beechcraft C-12 light cargo and passenger aircraft and the E-3 Sentry AWACS (airborne warning and control system) aircraft.
