See our list of Fixed Wing Aircraft, Rotary Wing Aircraft, and Non-flyer Statics below. View/Print the latest showgrounds map Static Displays A-10C Thunderbolt II Brought to you by your local 124th Fighter Wing, Idaho Air National Guard! The A-10 is the first Air Force aircraft specially designed for close air support of ground forces. They are simple, effective and survivable twin-engine jet aircraft that can be used against light maritime attack aircraft and all ground targets, including tanks and other armored vehicles. F-15E Strike Eagle The F-15E Strike Eagle is a dual-role fighter designed to perform air-to-air and air-to-ground missions. An array of avionics and electronics systems gives the F-15E the capability to fight at low altitude, day or night and in all weather. F-15C Eagle The F-15 Eagle is an all-weather, extremely maneuverable, tactical fighter designed to permit the Air Force to gain and maintain air supremacy over the battlefield. F-16 Falcon The F-16 Fighting Falcon is a compact, multi-role fighter aircraft. It is highly maneuverable and has proven itself in air-to-air combat and air-to-surface attack. It provides a relatively low-cost, high-performance weapon system for the United States and allied nations. UH-60 The UH/HH-60M Black Hawk multi-role helicopter serves as the U.S. Army’s primary front-line, medium-lift, utility helicopter supporting assault, air cavalry, and aeromedical evacuation units.
