“Protecting our nation and community is a privilege we take seriously. Everyday, F-15 Eagles of the 142nd Wing are on watch. On the anniversary of our independence, we are glad to help celebrate our independence in a very American way,” Unruh said. “When you look up and see your United States Air National Guard Eagles overhead, remember that your nation is strong. The 142nd Wing is proud to be part of your Independence Day celebration.”

About the 142nd Wing:

The Portland Air National Guard Base employs 1,500 Airmen who provide an economic impact of nearly $500 million to the region. The 142nd Wing defends our homeland with F-15 Eagle fighter jets, guarding the Pacific Northwest skies from northern California to the Canadian border through their Aerospace Control Alert mission as part of Air Combat Command and the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD). Their mission is to provide unequalled, mission-ready units to sustain combat aerospace superiority and peacetime tasking any time, any place in service to our nation, state and community.

  1. Can I post this here?
    Fourth of July was wonderful. Loved seeing the jets.
    What is it about neighbors who shoot off fireworks in our trees, going up over 10 feet in the air. We put out rules….NO FIREWORKS TO GO UP OVER A FEW INCHES FROM THE GROUND.
    OUR neighbors were shooting them until 11 pm. I was asleep. We were within 3 blocks of evacuation last year. Our cars were filled and ready to leave. These people are crazy.

  2. Thanks for information! We waited, listened and watched. Barely caught one in my lens…pretty fast…exciting and very patriotic to see them!
