Photo Comment

Built as an F-15A-1-NO. Previous identities were 45-59300, NACA 111, N5093V and XB-FUJ. While operating with NACA it was designated as EF-15C. Damaged beyond repair on 6 Sep 1968 at Hollister, California, while being operated by TBM Inc. The pilot attempted to take off with a full load of fire retardant from a runway too short for conditions. The aircraft ran off the end of the runway, through a fence and across a field, ripping off the landing gear and catching fire.
