Robins officials said the movement team will access Ga. 247 from the base's aero club gate at the north end of the installation and proceed south to the museum's restoration area. Traffic is expected to be blocked for about an hour.
The F-15B aircraft, tail number 76-0132, was a test aircraft obtained from Edwards Air Force Base, Calif. The 402nd Maintenance Wing at Robins will use the aircraft to train employees in crew chief, hydraulics and fuel courses, according to a base press release. About 250 employees will be trained using the aircraft over the next year.
The F-15B is a veteran, air superiority fighter capable of speeds in excess of 1,600 miles per hour, an altitude of 65,000 feet and an external-fuel-tank-assisted range of 3,450 miles. The Warner Robins Air Logistics Center at Robins is the worldwide focal point for management and sustainment of the Air Force's F-15 fleet.
