    On July 27th, 1972, the F-15 Eagle made its maiden flight. For that reason, today we celebrate its 40 years of life (although it’s true that it only entered active service in January 1976).

    Admired by many, criticized by others, and hated by some few (specially Mig pilots), there is no doubt the F-15 Eagle has been one of the most famous fighter planes of the western hemisphere in the past decades. Along with his brethren (F-14, F-16, F-18 ) is part of a special breed of aircraft that still today is highly acknowledged technologically speaking.

    Oh, yes, and don’t forget that the F-15 Eagle it is still the only airplane credited as a satellite killer.

    Since this is a paper models forum, let’s see what we find…

    Ruben, we had decided that absolutely no links to commercial sites will be allowed on the forum unless accompanied by a through build/and or a design thread. Thanks! :)
