WoW!Hard to believe the F-15 first flew in 1972!
While that is an amazing fact drjim what is sad is our upgrades since then have been paltry. While I agree that we should not needlessly shed blood, sweat and treasure where it is not deserved.. Those same air frames are crumbling in many cases. Unfortunately we only upgrade our equipment when we are getting our asses kicked. Right now its the ground forces. The next war against an identified military?If we take significant losses its hard to turn on the spigot from the end of WW2 again.
No argument from me on that!I still remember the pictures of that ANG F-15 that had the forward fuselage break off in flight.
