The F-15E Strike Eagle is not an uncommon sight in a theater of war. The fighter is known for its long-range, high-speed strikes in Afghanistan and Iraq. It's distinguished by darker camouflage and fuel tanks mounted near the engine intakes.
Officials at Mountain Home Air Force Base want the public to know that firepower from F-15Es will blast over Boise this week, in addition to the Danskin Mountains and the towns of Pine and Featherville. The fighter jets will be training in medium altitudes during the afternoon hours.
