F-15 Demo Team available for interview during Sentry Eagle
 
The United States Air Force F-15 West Coast Demonstration Team will be at the 173rd Fighter Wing's Open House and available for interview.

The F-15 West Coast Demonstration Team is one of the seven single-ship demonstration teams assigned to Air Combat Command (ACC). The team is located at Eglin Air Force Base, Fla., and is comprised of a demonstration pilot, a maintenance crew, ground safety observers and
narrators. Capt. Tony "Baron" Bierenkoven is the team leader and demonstration pilot.

The F-15 demonstration team highlights the superior performance capabilities of the aircraft. The combination of high- and low-speed maneuvering, rapid rolls, and maximum performance climbs and descents vividly illustrate the F-15 Eagle's capabilities.

At the conclusion of the F-15 Demonstration, Capt Bierenkoven will be joined by Mr. Steve Hinton in his F-86 Saber Jet for the Air Combat Command Heritage Flight. This demonstration highlights the heritage of our current fighter jets by showcasing them flying in close formation with a classic fighter aircraft.
