The first F15, TF-15A 73-0108 was for an operational USAF unit. The said F15 was a replacement training unit for F15 operations during the first stage of the introduction of the Eagle into service. Winter of year 1974 to 1975, McDonnell altered the F-15A serial number 72-0119 to set the world time in order for him to climb records. The said project was called Streak Eagle. To rid of some weight for this project, all non-important systems were deleted including the flap, speed brake, armament, radar and fire control system.The paint of the F15A was also ripped off, resulting in a bare metal aircraft. The F-15A was 1800 pound less than the others. This F15A which was produced by the Streak Eagle project is now on outdoor display at the USAF Museum inside the Wright Patterson AFB in Dayton, Ohio. Model has a 10.5" Length and 7.5" Wingspan.
