074 – F-15A-D Eagle (part 1)

Featured Guest
Colonel Brian "Spiderman" Kamp
U.S. Air Force (Retired)

There may be no more accomplished, capable, and effective pure air-to-air fighter aircraft than the once McDonnell Douglas, now Boeing F-15 Eagle. With an impressive weapons suite, radar, and ID capability, eye watering handling characteristics, and an unbeaten combat record, no other bird rules the skies quite like the Eagle.

On this episode, retired U.S. Air Force Colonel Brian “Spiderman” Kamp, who accrued more than 4,000 flight hours in the F-15, joins former F-22 Raptor guest Terry “Stretch” Scott, who has over 3,000 flight hours in the Eagle, to discuss this impressive machine inside and out. Former episode 25 hero Mike “BS” Walsh assists as guest co-host to offer his perspective as a relative newcomer to the F-15 after flying more than 1,000 hours in Marine F/A-18s and also helps answer listener questions.

Previous guest co-host Mike “BS” Walsh also returns to offer some follow-up thoughts including a comparison of the Eagle’s slow-speed flight handling to the F/A-18 Hornet — also a Boeing product.

F-15 Month’ concludes with an in-depth look at the two-seat strike-fighter Eagle variant. Whereas the A-D models profess to not have a “pound for air-to-ground,” the Boeing F-15E Strike Eagle was designed to sling mud from the get-go. And it does it exceedingly well!

On this episode, a F-15E pilot and WSO crew, Lieutenant Colonel Richard “TAC” Turner and Captain Mark “Smack” Smith, both active duty U.S. Air Force, tell us all about the mighty “Mud Hen” including how one scored an air-to-air kill with a laser-guided bomb.
