Remark Photographer
80-0024 (cn 668/C173) They say MDD engineers added flaps to the Eagle as an afterthought, because the wing generated so much lift it did not need them. This takeoff shot shows that it really doesn't. (Nikon D200 + Nikkor 300/4 AF-S)

Have to agree with my friend from Italy. The F-15 may indeed be the best ever for many reasons. Still holds all the time to climb records for 40 plus years. With constant upgrades to weapons systems, engines and avionics it remains a front line fighter. Its younger brother the F-22 Raptor now has the Eagles back. Between the two its lights out for any enemy.
