The McDonnell Douglas (now Boeing) F-15 Eagle is an American twin-engine, all-weather tactical fighter designed by McDonnell Douglas to gain and maintain air superiority in aerial combat. It is among the most successful modern fighters, with over 100 aerial combat victories. Following reviews of proposals, the United States Air Force selected McDonnell Douglas' design in 1967 to meet the service's need for a dedicated air superiority fighter. The Eagle first flew in July 1972, and entered service in 1976. (From Wikipedia)

As many photos as I've seen in your gallery of Air Force planes, I can never get tired of them. The composition, colors and detail are astonishing in this image of the F-15. I had a former student who became a "Top Gun" flying fighter planes off aircraft carriers. Their version of this plane, I believe, was an F-114.

Green and earth tones look great against deep blue sky. Excellent light and sharpness. It seems that you managed to be fairly close to it!

What could be better than yellow and blue combination? Another excellent presentation of the F-16. It's not so young but very effective fighter today too. Is it a rival of MiG-31? they have got a lot of common shapes indeed.

I know that this one of the most best hunters is that ever is made.
I am not certainly but I think that Israel these airplanes yet uses to today.
Lovely diagonal photographed, perfect clear and sharp.
Very well done, TFS.
