First 'E" model

LAC 3609 was the first "E" AF 61-2358 , There were 15 other early "E's" which were actually converted "B"'s They had special beef-up in the outer wings for the External tank and the Shelf Brackets (MLG ) were converted and different from the production "E"s . I flew 3609 in Marietta when it was the test bed for -15 engines and several times when it went through PDM . At the PDM Depot we referred to the first 16 "E"'s as "B-E"'s as an aid to prevent confusion from "real" "E":|"'s. WBH
