An F-15 down the street: this video shows the odd way a fighter can be moved from its airbase

This is something you don’t see every day.

On Aug. 30, 2015 a now retired F-15C was moved from Tyndall Air Force Base, Florida to its new destination in a very particular way. Transported by truck, the aircraft taxied down the runway, continued to the gate, then down the street and finally the lorry delivered the Eagle to its new home, the Haney Technical Center in Panama City, Florida.

In Tyndall the F-15C was used as a Ground Instructional Training Aircraft (GITA), while at Haney Technical Center’s Aviation it will serve as an advanced tool to train future aircraft mechanics.

In this video you can see not only the F-15C transport, but also how a fighter jet can actually stop the traffic.
