F-15E Over the Numbers at Davis-Monthan

Late in the day, Jim and I figured that the practice flights were finished so we got in my car and started out of the park. As I put my camera back in the bag, I jokingly said "This will guarantee there will be another flight."

It did!

We ended up along the western fence of D-M and watched the last flight of the day and then enjoyed some low passes and final approaches of various aircraft.

The pilot of this F-15E of the 4th FW at Seymour Johnson AFB in North Carolina, made his final approach a little fast, so he deployed the huge airbrake on top of the fuselage.
