By the way, does F-15EX stand for F-15EXTREME?

From Aviation Week, author Steve Trimble:

Boeing has rolled out the first F-15EX Eagle II in St. Louis that will be delivered later this year to an operational U.S. Air Force squadron, the company said on social media accounts.

The aircraft in yellow and green primer paint was shown crossing a street dividing Boeing's factory from the airport. The angle showed the aircraft still lacks a full canopy, but includes all other major structural features.

The rollout ends a nearly 2 1/2-year gap since the delivery of the first two F-15EX aircraft to the Air Force in March-April 2021.

The first two Eagle IIs were delivered to the Air Force's test squadron and sport a slightly different configuration from follow-on deliveries.
