In 1967 the U.S. became aware of the Soviet MiG-25 Foxbat. This made it necessary to develop a new aircraft to counter the MiG-25. The USAF rejected the USN F-14 Tomcat and issued its own requirements. The solution came in the form of the McDonnell-Douglas (now Boeing) F-15 Eagle. The F-15A made its inaugural flight in July 1972 and in January 1976 the first Eagle entered service. The “E” entered service in 1989. The F-15 was the first dedicated USAF air superiority fighter since the F-86 Sabre.

This Israeli F-15D 957 “Markia Schakim” (Sky Blazer), msn 669/D003 from the 106th “Spearhead” Squadron is best known for surviving a midair collision with an A-4 on May 1, 1983. On a training sortie between two F-15 and two A-4s, F-15D 957 made a maneuver and collided with an A-4 destroying the F-15’s right wing. The A-4 pilot ejected but somehow the F-15D managed to land. In 1982 F-15D 957 scored 4 victories against Syrian aircraft and scored its fifth victory against Syrian MiG-23 on November 19, 1985.
