An F-15SG Media Event for the 428th Fighter Squadron, currently training at D-M, is scheduled for July 29.

There will also be an opportunity to conduct a video shoot on the flightline at 9:15 a.m. on the 29th before the aircraft takeoff and interview F-15 pilots and crew.

Ten F-15SGs from Mountain AFB, Idaho have been training at D-M since July 7th due to runway maintenance at their home installation.

The 428 FS is the U.S. flagged flying squadron of the Peace Carvin V program, a long-term partnership with the Republic of Singapore. The squadron is dedicated to the training of Singaporean aircrew in the F-15SG, the country's newest fighter platform. The combined efforts of this program help ensure a strong U.S. relationship with Singapore, a critical partner in the region, while helping Singapore project airpower into the next generation.

If you are interested in covering the event please RSVP to the 355th Fighter Wing Public Affairs office at 228-3406 by 4:00 p.m. on July 28.
