F-15 Engine Change

Scan1379 While I was at Edwards Air Force Base, I was told that McAir had promised the Air Force that an F-15 could have one of it’s engines changed in 15 minutes. So, they arranged a demo!. They made it with a shade under 15 minutes; but, every thing was perfect for the demo. All equipment was pre-staged, all engine covers and caps were of and the crew was drilled to perfection. My good ex-air force mechanic buddy said that the fastest they ever did it was about 30 minutes in the real world! Below are some typical engine change photos.
