The F-15 Eagle Tactical Fighter

The McDonnell Douglas (now Boeing) F-15 Eagle is a twin-engine, all-weather tactical fighter designed to gain and maintain air superiority in aerial combat. It is considered among the most successful modern fighters with over 100 aerial combat victories with no losses in dogfights. It was developed for the U.S. Air Force, and first flew in July 1972. The F-15?s maneuverability is derived from low wing loading (weight to wing area ratio) with a high thrust-to-weight ratio enabling the aircraft to turn tightly without losing airspeed. The F-15 can climb to 30,000 feet (10,000 m) in around 60 seconds. The thrust output of the dual engines is greater than the aircraft’s weight, thus giving it the ability to accelerate in a vertical climb. The weapons and flight control systems are designed so that one person can safely and effectively perform air-to-air combat. The F-15 is expected to be in service with the U.S. Air Force until 2025.

The F-16 Fighting Falcon multi role jet fighter aircraft

The F-16 Fighting Falcon is a multi role jet fighter aircraft developed by General Dynamics and Lockheed Martin for the United States Air Force. Designed as a lightweight fighter, it evolved into a successful multi role aircraft. The Falcon’s versatility is a paramount reason it was a success on the export market, serving 24 countries. The F-16 is the largest Western fighter program with over 4,000 aircraft built since production started in 1976. Though no longer produced for the US Air Force, it is still produced for export.  The Fighting Falcon is a superb dogfighter with innovations including a frameless, bubble canopy for better visibility, side-mounted control stick to ease control while under high g-forces, and reclined seat to reduce the effect of g-forces on the pilot. It was also the first fighter aircraft to be deliberately built to sustain 9g turns. It is also one of the few jets with a thrust-to-weight ratio greater than one, giving the Falcon excellent acceleration.  – wiki

    Your name looks like you skipped English class too many times.
    Jet Fighter Aircraft
    “Aircrafts” is not the plural of Aircraft.
    If it was “The Aircrafts Jet Fighter”, that would be different.
    But I never heard of a Jet Fighter owning another Aircraft.
