McDonnell Douglas F-15C Eagle

@Moffett Federal Airfield, Mountain View, CA

May 2004

The annual airshow at Moffett Field was one of the largest in Northern California, routinely drawing huge crowds.  Seen at the last airshow  held here, this Langley-based Eagle was shot with one of my early Nikon Coolpix cameras (Coolpix 4500, 4MP).  The historic Hangars Two & Three can be seen in the background.  First flown in 1972, the venerable F-15 is still in service with close to 1200 built.
