Book review – F-15I Ra’am in IAF service

F-15I in IAF service (Aircraft in Detail 2)
Ra’anan Weiss
IsraDecal Publications
2006

What it’s about:

Just what the title says, the F-15I (Israeli variant of the F-15E). Mostly photographs with some text.

What I liked about the book:

Many nice photographs of a significant operator of this superb aircraft.

What could have been done better:

The “walk around” section was weak. There were too many small photos, none with captions. So the reader sees a detail. It’s unclear what is the function of this detail, where it is located on the aircraft and from what direction the photo was taken.

Summary:

Weiss and IsraDecal produce attractive publications about an important air force which is inadequately covered due to its understandable secrecy. While this book has much to offer that is unavailable elsewhere, it also has major flaws.

Rating:

3 stars out of a possible 5.
