Bayou Militia Eagles

B11I3421.jpgThe F-15 has been in service for a long time now.  It operates with regular Air Force units, reserve units and Air National Guard units.  The Bayou Militia is a unit based at New Orleans in Louisiana.  Their tail code is JZ which, if you think about where they are based, makes a lot of sense.  I had seen pictures of jets from this unit a lot over the years but I hadn’t seen them for myself.  Having them at Red Flag made me a lot happier than makes sense for a unit.
