Quiet compared to a BAC 1-11 unhushed!!

shitty video not worth watching

Yes it does gain speed because full after burner, but never a 90
degree/vertical like F-16. Two completely different aircraft. 

Author Vince Burden ( ago)
to think it took 30 years for anything comparable to challenge it....and
it's STILL one deadly mofo.

Author cisa93 ( ago)
F-15 is an awesome and combat proven A/C, but does not have
thrust-to-weight ratio as the F-16 and MIG-29

Dude virtical take off is straight up

It is vertical takeoff?

It's called a Viking take off.

America's rip-off of the Russian mig25 foxbat aircraft,the best in the
world at the time(late 60's) a true mach 3 performers the F15 only
immulates but is certainly more aerobatic than its predecesor due to its
power to weight advantage

In my opinion the f 15 is the best fighter bomber and the state of the art
plane of the world best plane.

the f15 is fluffing invincible!

Author bamccaig ( ago)
When I was a child two friends and I were into fighter jets. One loved the
F-14, one loved the F-16, and I chose the F-15 as my favorite. I don't
regret my decision, and I suppose they didn't either. They're all awesome
machines anyway, but I still think the F-15 is awesomer. :)

This jet can achieve Mach 2.5 which is the fastest among the competitors,
can carry the most weapon loads and have the farthest combat range. Plus
F15 Silent Eagle and Advanced F15 versions are equipped with latest AESA
radar, Infrared Tracking and Electronic Warfare System. You just can't beat
this setup that is affordable to buy or maintain unlike the Typhoon which
is so incredibly costly and unreliable with zero proven records. Also in my
opinion F15 is the only one that looks like a classic fighter jet.

I know the F-22 is more advanced & deadly but the F-15 will always be my
all time fav fighter plane. It's a beautiful design, fast, agile,
versatile & has a perfect combat record. Doesn't get much better than

Author MoeJae86 ( ago)
To me F-15 is one of the most fascinating jet fighters. I am curious (A
what if question here) if they produced a model that combines both the F-15
ACTIVE / Silent Eagle with the lastest radar electronic equipment would we
really have the need for the f-22? And wouldn't that be more efficient and
effective to build off of a proven platform that has actual experience
rather than a whole new plane that is ( from my understanding )

Skip to 3:00 for the actual takeoff. Find a different video if you want to
see an actual vertical takeoff. 

Author theoriginalbadbob ( ago)
An F4 Phantom can take off, point the nose up and accelerate to 1,000 mph,
going straight up. Those babies also held the top speed record, for
operational fighter aircraft, for about 14 years, at 1,604 mph. One of the
greatest planes of all time.

3 minutes taiing?????

Remember folks, the F-15 has been the biggest parts distributor of Russian
fighter aircraft for the last 30+ years!!!

Good old Eagle. Amazing power, never beaten in combat (only by accidents)...

Oh, and it can fly and land with one wing missing. Beat that :)

Nearly as amazing as the RAF Lightening of the 70's lol

Author dsoutherngent1 ( ago)
This was not a vertical take off, or a performance take off for that
matter. Find footage of an A-5 (maybe the sexiest aircraft ever built)
pilot putting the nose straight up in the air and take off like a rocket.
That's both vertical and AWESOME to see

It is fun to watch any piece of equipment with that much power take off. I
bet every non military pilot on the field that day took a moment to watch
in awe.

Someone here said this before "For vertical take off, skip to 3:10 and turn
monitor sideways"
Watch the Harriers for some smooth vertical takeoffs.

help this user understand what "vertical" means and how to properly title a
video so the uploader doesn't get 3200+ dislikes lol

This is REALLY shitty footage. Apparently whoever set this up to be filmed
didn't think about all of the object obstructing the view. This is total
crap. Whoever took the time putting this together is a waste of oxygen.

How about next time you consider camera position and angle so that your
video is not shit.

Also... how about you title the video appropriately. The F-15 can't takeoff
vertically. This also isn't even a vertical climb. Again.... you're a
fucking waste of oxygen. Don't try to get youtube views by lying in the

That was hardly a vertical takeoff especially for an F-15. How did you pass

Author Steve H. ( ago)
As indicated by the Conformal Fuel Tanks (CFT) nesting between the wing
root and the side of the center fuselage these are E model F15s. The stub
bomb pylons on the CFTs are also an indication. GTOW (gross take off
weight) was 80,000 lbs.
The first ship to come down the assembly line at now Boeing, then McDonnell
Douglas was ship #D51 which was a conversion to an E model configuration.
It was a cost effective conversion the USAF liked as contrasted by the

That's an F-15E (Strike Eagle) out of Seymour Johnson AFB assigned to the
333rd Fighter Squadron "Lancers". Built in 1987. 

Author Strefflyer ( ago)
If you want to see afterburner vertical take offs suggest you do a search
for English Electric Lightning, they might be old videos and films but
those aircraft can still show how to climb to altitude quickly shame there
are no longer any flying just fast taxi runs.

There's a new definition of vertical?

degree upward untill we lost sight of him it was amazing

The first three minutes are just video of the plane taxiing around the
airport. There isn't even a vertical take off, just a fairly steep climb.
Pretty poor.

Yawn, I've been more impressed by watching 787s on approach to my local
airport than this snoozefest.

Author imyyz4u ( ago)
In 1980 I worked next to the McDonnell Douglas factory in St. Louis where
the F-15 was manufactured. I worked outside 90% of the time and watched the
new ones take off on their first flights, very,very impressive. Each
takeoff was a short taxi then full throttle nose straight up and out of
sight in a matter of seconds. The sound was unbelievable and the ground
would shake like an earthquake. The F-18 was made there too, they were
powerful and could go vertical but couldn't climb nearly as fast as the

vertical and that was impressive.
