That's good news, I'm glad the pilots made it out ok. To say this has been a bad 6 months for the F-15 would be an understatement.

Just read that one of the Pilots have died. Its a sad day for the USAF and his family members. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family.

A real bummer all-around. The USAF F-15 community has really seen some hard time as of late.
