    Seems like when the Blue Angels flew F-15s and did a slow fly by, they were going slower than that. Of course, that's just watching them from the ground.

    Edit: I'm thinking of F-18s.

    Hard to believe the F-15 first flew in 1972. Canít believe itís that old. Canít believe Iím that old.

    Hard to believe that novels are written where a F-15 or a MIG pulls along side a super cub or a beaver and gives hand signals to get on the ground, or get shot down.
