F-15s - Mighty Eagles With Power To Spare

This post is for Juvat.

Juvat, for those of you who don't know, is one of those awesome pilots that got to fly one of the hottest and best jets in the world - the F-15.

If you're not regularly reading him and the other contributors at Chant Du Depart, you darn well should,

So, how good is the F-15 as an aircraft?

So good that it doesn't even need both wings to fly and safely land, seriously:

On that day there was a combination of an awesome aircraft and an awesome pilot. Hopefully Juvat never got close to having to replicate that particular scenario.

No, fortunately I managed to avoid that, although we were informed early in the transition program about that accident. Unfortunately, the pilot of the A-4 involved in the accident wasn't so lucky.
