The USAF rejected the USN F-14 Tomcat and issued its own requirements. The solution came in the form of the McDonnell-Douglas (now Boeing) F-15 Eagle. The F-15A made its inaugural flight in July 1972 and in January 1976 the first Eagle entered service. The "E" entered service in 1989. The F-15 was the first dedicated USAF air superiority fighter since the F-86 Sabre.McDonnell Douglas F-15E Strike Eagle AF 90-0233 c/n 1163/E135 was the first F-15E powered by the new P&W F-100-PW-229 engines. The 391st FS Bold Tigers took part in WWII, Vietnam and was deactivated in 1990. The unit was reactivated in 1992 and equipped with the F-15E and flew during Operation Enduring Freedom, Operation Iraqi Freedom. In 2006 the 391st were the first unit to operate the F-15E from Bagram AB, Afghanistan. The 391st calls Mountain Home AFB, Idaho home and is the largest FS in the USAF with 24 F-15E.
