F-15 to Dakota Territory Air Museum

Posted: Updated:

The last remaining F-15 Eagle at the Minot Air Force base was moved Saturday morning to the Dakota Territory Air Museum.

This plane was the last one that the Fifth Fighter Squadron known as the "Spitten Kittens"

flew while they were at the Minot base, from 1984 to 1988.

It's a 63 foot combat fighter, and is one of the three pieces in a display being worked on at the air museum now.

Don Larson says that when it's finished, it'll be a place to honor those who were a part of the squadron.

(Don Larson, President of Board of Directors, DTAM) "It's going to be pretty neat to recognize the Fifth Fighter because the Fifth Fighter spent a lot of time here; there was nearly 30 years that they spent out at this base. And there's a lot of people that went through here and a lot of friends that were made with local people and so it's going to be exciting to get it all put together and get the recognition that's due for the folks that served in that particular squadron."

Next spring the Air Museum will receive an F-106 from Arizona, which will join the T-33 and the F-15 Eagle to complete the Spitten Kittens display.
