F-15 Eagle / TU-95 Bear
At the height of the Cold War the Russian Tupolev Tu-95 Bear long-range
roamed the world's skies. On constant alert, the interceptors of the First
were tasked with the air defence of continental United States.
Depicted in a magnificent cloudscape, a pair of F-15A Eagles of 125th Fighter
based at Jacksonville IAP, Florida, intercept a Russian Tupolev Tu-95 Bear
en route non-stop from Moscow to Havana, Cuba.
High over the Atlantic, the F-15 pilots give the Russian crew a
reminder of what to expect if push comes to shove.
F-15 Eagles proved their superiority whenever put to the test, recording
a 60:1 kill ratio against
Syrian-flown Soviet built fighters over the Lebanon, and again during the
claiming 33 Iraqi aircraft destroyed.
Philip's dramatic painting conveys the F-15 message!
