An F-15 Eagle prepares to land after flying a mission Jan. 9 at Hickam
Air Force Base, Hawaii. The F-15s, from the 199th Fighter Squadron of
the Hawaii Air National Guard, have not flown since Air Force officials
grounded the F-15 fleet Nov. 3, 2007. Air Combat Command officials
cleared a portion of its F-15 A through D models to begin flying today.
