Final Flight
Maj. Ryan Stec, 40th Flight Test Squadron, completes a pre-flight check of Jet 025 before its final flight and retirement July 30 at Eglin Air Force Base, Florida. The twin-engine, single seat F-15C flew as a memorial to Maj. James Duricy, a test pilot who died in the same kind of aircraft during a test flight in 2002.
