Two Bobs - 1/48 McDonnell F-15C Eagle Grim Reapers End of an Era. The 493rd Fighter Squadron, nicknamed the Grim Reapers, is part of the United States Air Force's 48th Fighter Wing located at Raf Lakenheath. The 493rd will be the last USAF squadron to fly the F-15C/D, flying the Eagle since 1994. They are currently transitioning to the F-35 Lightning II and as part of that transition, they have painted a special scheme commemorating their history with the F-15. There are also markings on this sheet for three additional schemes from their 2019 deployment that feature nose art.
The Grim Reapers have received multiple commendations and awards in their history, including the Air Force Associatin's Hughes Tropher in 1997 and 1999 and the 2007, 2014, 2016 and 2019 Raytheon Trophies, for being recognized as the top fighter squadron in the USAF.
