The 5th Fighter Interceptor Squadron was stationed at Minot AFB, North Dakota. The 5th FIS received the first F-15A/B’s in 1985 replacing the F-106A’s. It must have been the shortest F-15 squadron ever, the unit was deactivated that same year and the F-15’s were transferred to the 101st Fighter Interceptor Squadron at Otis AFB, Massachusetts


(I am looking for more information about the early days. Any information like squadron rituals, flying anecdotes that you would like to donate please contact the webmaster using on the contact me page)
