The F-15C Eagle’s final flights in Japan are scheduled for this week.

U.S. Airmen and McDonnell Douglas F-15C Eagle assigned to Kadena Air Base, Japan, will participate in an Aviation Training Relocation, otherwise known as “ATR,” event hosted by the Japanese Air Self-Defense Force (JASDF) 8th Air Wing at Tsuiki Air Base, Japan, November 10-18, 2022. Aviation Training Relocation is a result of the May 2006 United States-Japan roadmap for realignment implementation, a bilateral program aimed at increasing operational readiness and improving interoperability.
