Newly revealed plans to retire more than 300 F-15 and F-16 jets in fiscal year 2010 would leave the Air Force with signficantly fewer of its No. 2 combat air fighter, nearly 60 less than the service intended to fly until the mid-2020s, reports Inside the Air Force.

The scrapping of 137 F-15s would leave the Air Force with only 129 F-15C fighter jets, according to an internal service document obtained by InsideDefense.com. Officials have long said the Air Force would augment its fifth-generation F-22A fleet with 187 F-15Cs, dubbed “Golden Eagles.”

Earlier this week, InsideDefense.com reported that the Air Force is planning a dramatic 18-percent cut to its F-15 and F-16 fighter jet fleet in fiscal year 2010 in an attempt to find $3.4 billion to bolster other combat aircraft programs, munitions inventories, ISR and manpower efforts.
