F-15E Strike Eagle fighter of the Air Force (Air Force) The US sparkled during takeoff from the British airbase Lakenkhet, reports The Drive. Photographer Matt Smart posted the corresponding pictures on Twitter.

The publication writes that this incident was provoked by the collapsed nozzle flap of the right F100 engine.

According to The Drive, the F-15E Strike Eagle was in the air for almost two hours, and its pilot probably did not know about the incident for some time. The publication assures that the incident hardly prevented the aircraft from performing the tasks assigned to it.

In May, The Drive reported that the fourth-generation F-15E Strike Eagle fighter of the US Air Force for the first time received unobtrusive AGM-158 Joint Air-to-Surface Standoff Missiles (JASSM), designed, in particular, to penetrate the enemy zone of restriction and prohibition of access and maneuver.

In March, the publication wrote that the F-15E Strike Eagle added a new task, which is to transport smart bombs for the fifth-generation F-22 Raptor and F-35 Lightning II fighters.
