An insight into operating, flying and maintaining the USAF's all-weather tactical jet fighter. Considered to be among the most successful of modern jet fighters with 104 aerial combat victories to its credit (with no losses) the McDonnell Douglas F-15 Eagle twin-engine all-weather tactical jet fighter entered service with the USAF in 1976 and is expected to remain so until 2025.
