The F-15 West Coast Demonstration Team flew its last-ever performance at Eglin AFB, Fla., May 1, 2009. The Eglin-based unit is disbanding after 26 years of operations as the base transitions to the F-35 initial joint schoolhouse. Here, a sequence of time-sequenced photos showing the F-15C of Capt. Sam Joplin, demo team pilot, performing a maneuver over Eglin during the May 1 show.
