Complex Ribbon Cutting at Robins Air Force Base
Air Force and community leaders conducted a ribbon cutting ceremony celebrating the completion of phase one of the consolidated mission complex June 25, on Robins Air Force Base in Georgia.
“As a major command it’s really important that we take care of our airmen,” said Lt. Gen. Richard Scobee, commander of Air Force Reserve Command. “The only reason we exist is to make sure we can produce combat capability for America and having all of our staff agencies in one area allows for easy coordination and communications.”
He said it was a very important step in making the command more efficient.
Scobee, along with retired Lt. Gen. Charles Stenner, former AFRC commander, Col. Lyle Drew, 78th Air Base Wing commander, Warner Robins Mayor Randy Toms and Houston County Commissioners Chairman Tommy Stalnaker cut the ribbon during the ceremony.
F-15A Becomes Signature Aircraft at Museum of Aviation
About a year in the making, the F-15A aircraft that was on display in front of the Warner Robins Air Logistics Complex headquarters building at Robins Air Force Base, Georgia, has been undergoing repairs and refurbishment and having a new home prepared for it in front of the Museum of Aviation with prime visibility from Ga. Highway 247.
On June 27, that F-15A was placed at its final home.
The F-15A, which has been in front of the WR-ALC headquarters in building 215 since the early 1990s, was removed from its old pedestal and moved to the industrial area where it received an overhaul to prepare it for display at the museum. It received new landing hear to prepare it for mobility and had it old paint striped and replaced with new primer, paint and markings.
A special marking added to this aircraft is the tail flash. The F-15A sports an “RG” tail flash. In the 1980s, Robins had two F-15 aircraft assigned to the installation for test operations.
