For Juvat...

Another plane I found at the Eglin museum.
Oh look--it's a McDonnell-Douglas F-15.
I saw this and thought of Juvat right off.
Got a full load of stores under the wings, too.
Complete with access panels that are...riveted.
That ain't right. But she's still a thing of beauty.

  1. It won't fit in your driveway. And I'm pretty sure you can't parallel park it on your street.

    1. Truth be told, I'm more of a ground attack sort myself. Come back tomorrow for that one.

  2. For those that might ask, she's carrying 4 AIM-9 Sidewinders, and 2 AIM-7 Sparrows.

    The Sidewinders are still current, but the Sparrows have been replaced by the AIM-120 AMRAAM, Advanced Medium Range Air to Air Missile.

    I did some development work on the AIM-120 when it was still a Hughes Aircraft product.
