Well, shoot. Scrapped. Friend of mine turned me on to this site and of course the first plane I looked up was "Triple Stix, Pride of the Fleet". At least that's what I called her when she had my name on the canopy rail for the three years (mid 80's) that I was stationed at Holloman AFB, 8TFS Black Sheep. Sure, she had her issues, mostly hydraulic in those years, but I always had the 702 put my name against her when we both appeared in the same go. She flew great for me. Nearly every page of my log book during those years has at least one, usually several entries of 77-111. We deployed together to Red Flag, numerous large scale exercises, several cross countries, and beat up on everything from A-10s to F-18s to the MiG-21s and 23s of the 4477th. Sorry to hear of her demise. Its like losing a good friend.

She was a good plane when i had her. Had some gear issues with k-balled gear from other A/C. We had some awesome TDY's together..I stenciled all my kids names on her as DCC's when i launched her out to boneyard. She landed Code-1.. RIP TRIPPLE STIX, Gen Mills

I was a 2nd and 1st lieutenant maintenance officer for the 7th AMU, 49th TFW 1981-83. 77-0111 was one of ours. She was known as the Triple Cripple" and was the worst flyer we had. She had a fire in the wiring of the radar/fire control system, fuel issues, and generally was our least MC A/C. I followed her tarnished career until she went to AMARG. This A/c has been stripped of many, many parts and has given her (almost) all to other F-15's flying. She may have already gone to the scrapper by this time (Aug 2013). Best wishes to all my fellow Eagle Keepers. Anyone from the 7th, please let me hear from you. Buck

This jet was known at Otis as "triple sticks". I remember hearing from the crew that went to Soesterberg AB to get this jet that she was a hanger queen there. They said it had sat at the end of the flight line and was a parts rack to keep the others flying. It was pretty good for us though. Crewed by Msgt. Dennis "General" Mills.
