Get a behind the scenes of the Greatest Air Force Base in the World! The proud home of the F-15E Strike Eagle, Seymour Johnson AFB has become known and awarded as the “Best Air Force Base in the World.” Housing the largest inventory of F-15Es in the world, Goldsboro is the hub for training and deploying the nation’s best fighter pilots and weapon systems operators. During the tour, you will learn about the multi-faceted mission of the 4th Fighter Wing and the 916th Air Refueling Wing, and how these two “wings” make Seymour Johnson AFB one of the most fascinating and vital bases in the armed forces. You’re going to get up-close with the jets, take pictures, and peak inside the cockpit. Plus, it’s highly likely you’ll witness take-offs and air power during your tour!
