The McDonnell Douglas (Now Boeing) F-15E Strike Eagle is an American all-weather multirole strike fighter derived from the McDonnell Douglas F-15 Eagle. The F-15E was designed in the 1980s for long-range, high-speed interdiction without relying on escort or electronic-warfare aircraft. United States Air Force (USAF) F-15E Strike Eagles can be generally distinguished from other US Eagle variants by darker aircraft camouflage, conformal fuel tanks (CFTs) mounted along the engine intake ramps (although CFTs can also be mounted on earlier F-15 variants) and a tandem-seat cockpit. Primary Role: Multirole Strike Fighter.
On February 22, 1944 a severely damaged B-17 “Mi Amigo” tried to land on a park in Sheffield but the pilot noticed children playing there so he crashed into a treed hillside killing all 10 crew. One of those children, Tony Foulds eventually related the story to the BBC and a 10 aircraft “Mi Amigo 75th Anniversary Flypast” took place on Friday 22nd February 2019. Four F-15E from 494th FS bore names of the 10 U.S. Airmen and executed a missing man formation.
