AN F-15 Eagle from Barnes ANG Base will be featured on static display at the New York Air Show on July 1-2, 2017 at the Stewart International Airport.

 

The F-15 Eagle has been the U.S. Air Force’s primary fighter jet aircraft and intercept platform since the late 1970’s. The Eagle’s air superiority is achieved through a mixture of maneuverability, acceleration, range, weapons and avionics. It can penetrate enemy defense and outperform and outfight most current enemy aircraft. The F-15 has electronic systems and weaponry to detect, acquire, track and attack enemy aircraft.

 

The F-15’s superior maneuverability and acceleration are achieved through high engine thrust-to-weight ratio and low wing loading. The high thrust-to-weight ratio, enables the aircraft to turn tightly without losing airspeed.

 

The F-15 can carry a variety of air-to-air weaponry. An automated weapon system enables the pilot to perform aerial combat safely and effectively, using the head-up display and the avionics and weapons controls located on the engine throttles or control stick. When the pilot changes from one weapon system to another, visual guidance for the required weapon automatically appears on the head-up display.

 

The first F-15 made its maiden flight in July 1972. The first production F-15 Eagle was delivered in November 1974 with the first combat squadron delivery in January 1976.
