Perhaps the best F15 shot I've ever seen. Stunning colours, the whole picture has kind of a threatening athmosphere.

It will take a long time for me to find another picture to replace this one on my desktop! It's a close-up shot and that's how we like it - close enough to see the "face" of the pilot! This has got to be one of the best photos I have seen, and I usually don't like photos of military aircraft!

Thank You, Baldur, for sharing this Superb pic of the Eagle in it's element.
While MiG and Sukhoi jets are Better airshow performers, the F-15C's close cousin, the "E" model with the F-16Cs are the Real Deal of combat jets.
Both have Sterling Battle Proven records in air combat.

What a beautiful creature of the sky! I sent this pic to a friend who enjoys drawing aircraft of this type. I thought the lines of the aircraft were perfectly captured in this shot. Clear, clean, beautiful shading, excellent backdrop and one can see the pilot!
