On Feb. 14, 1991 during “Operation Desert Storm” F-15E 89-0487 from the 335 th TFS/4 th TFW scored the first air-to-air kill for an F-15E. Special Forces were under attack by Iraqi forces and helicopters. The helicopters were circling and driving the ground forces toward awaiting Iraqi forces. F-15E 89-0487 and his wingman devised a plan to eliminate the helicopters starting with the lead that was on the ground so 0487 dropped a GBU-10. The helicopter began to lift off and miraculously the bomb found the airborne helicopter and destroyed it.
