EGLIN AIR FORCE BASE, Fla. -- An infrared search and tracking pod, known as the Legion Pod, recently passed two milestones in two different Air Force fighter aircraft here.
The first milestone came July 8 when an F15C Eagle fired an AIM-9X missile using the pod. The second milestone came five days later when an F16 Fighting Falcon flew its first-ever operational flight carrying the new system.
