Love them vortices!
I worked on all models of F-15 at Edwards AFB as a civil service avionics flightline tech. We called them "Mudhens" and also, "Beagles" (Bomber Eagles)...
My now-deceased uncle was a groundpounder in the 52nd Fighter Group, 2nd Fighter Squadron in North Africa and Italy during WW II. Their nickname, a gentle swipe at the Americans flying in the British Eagle Squadron, was "The Beagle Squadron".
