Inscription. On 10 June 1983 McChord's 318th FIS received its first F-15 replacing the units venerable F-106. The 318th "Green Dragons" captured the 1984 Hughes Achievement Trophy, presented to USAF's Top Fighter Squadron. In 1989, plans to convert the 318th FIS into the F-16 were canceled and the unit was slated to close with their F-15s replacing F-4's from Oregon Air National Guard's 123rd FIS. On 07 December 1989 the 318th FIS disbanded, leaving McChord without a fighter mission since the 1940's.
