Flying High In A F-15E Strike Eagle Fighter!

Pilots that fly the F-15E Strike Eagle Fighter jet call it the greatest aircraft in the Air Force's arsenal. It’s 81,000 pounds of pure power, speed and technology. As part of preparations for the "Wings Over Wayne" air show this weekend, Shelby Brown had the opportunity to ride on this super jet with a pilot from Seymour Johnson Air Force base in Goldsboro. From 360 degree rolls to experiencing extreme forces of gravity, she got to see what this jet can really do. The cost of flying this type of jet is $10,000 per hour and uses about 20,000 pounds of fuel. You can see the Strike Eagle and dozens of other military aircraft at the "Wings Over Wayne" air show this Sunday at Seymour Johnson Air Force base in Goldsboro. Gates open at 9.
