F-15 Eagle Origins & Development 1964-1972

Untitled 2b While discussing another matter, Jack Abercrombie sent me this report from the Office of Air Force History. It is the account of the Air Force’s efforts to acquire a new air superiority fighter which became the F-15 Eagle. I thought that it would make a fine post!

The abstract, in part, reads like this:“This study traces the evolution of the F-15 Eagle air superiority fighter from its beginning in 1964 through the aircraft's first flight in July 1972. It examines the military. technological. economic and political influences on the weapon system
acquisition process. ….The story ends with air superiority reaffirmed as a major mission.”
