The Mike model has the smaller head wing tips than the Lima models. And Mike model is usually fitted with the blue stripe on the body, Lima models are fitted with the combination of Yellow, Red stripes.
But I wish to ask a question. I get it when you upload large images (e.g. 4700 wide or more) and they're only available as paid prints, posters, photos etc. But what about this one and others like it? If they are 4700+ wide but not clearly available only as paid products, is there no way to grab them as large wallpapers?
Oh wow oh wow oh wow!! Would it be disgusting to request multiples? If not:
- Reimagined Connie in trouble - A-10 Tankbuster - Star Trek Constitution-class starship - chasing the buzz-bomb - jet hunter - Avro Vulcan - Star Trek Reimagined Connie Warm Sunrise - Eagles - Tomcats - The Dark Side Star Trek - Tomcats Fox Two - Training to be Top Gun - Star Trek See-Through Reimagined Connie
The MudHen can be configured for air-to-air also, I believe. But yes, that would be my only critique of the image. Using a single-seat F-15C instead of the dual-seat F-15E would be more appropriate for the interception/escort scenario depicted. Otherwise this is a wonderful image, well made and it conveys a tenseness of impending action...
I can think of at least 2 incidents where this happened; one blue-on-blue involving the USAF and a Sparrow, and one collision in the IAF where the pilot lost the port wing, both fins and the port engine.
