An F-15E Strike Eagle assigned to the 335th Fighter Squadron takes off at Seymour Johnson Air Force Base, North Carolina, April 8, 2022. The F-15E was the first U.S. operational aircraft whose engines’ thrust exceeded the plane’s loaded weight, permitting it to accelerate even while in vertical climb.
