McDonnell Douglas (now Boeing) F-15E Strike Eagle - #89-0487, 335th FS "Chiefs", 4th FW, USAF, Bagram Airbase, Afghanistan, January 2012

1:72 Scale.  Length: 10.6".  Wingspan: 7"



McDonnell Douglas F-15E Strike Eagle #89-0487, c/n 1134/E109, was built as the 109th F-15E and was delivered to the 335th FS “Chiefs”, 4th TFW, on November 13, 1990. A veteran of the 1991 Gulf War, it is the only F-15E to have an air-to-air kill when it dropped a 2,000-lb GBU-10 Laser Guided Bomb on a Mi-24 Hind. The F-15 took part in Operation Desert Storm, Deliberate Guard, Northern Watch, Southern Watch, Iraqi Freedom, and Enduring Freedom. On January 13, 2012 #89-0487 became the first F-15E to log 10,000 flight hours.

In 1967 the United States became aware of the Soviet MiG-25 Foxbat. This made it necessary to develop a new aircraft to counter the MiG-25. The USAF rejected the USN F-14 Tomcat and issued its own requirements. The solution came in the form of the McDonnell-Douglas (now Boeing) F-15 Eagle. The F-15A made its inaugural flight in July 1972 and in January 1976 the first Eagle entered service. The "E" entered service in 1989. The F-15 was the first dedicated USAF air superiority fighter since the F-86 Sabre.
