Description

I was flying in the rear cockpit of an F-15, callsign Spear 4, that was part of a 4-ship package of F-15s participating in Cope Thunder, a mock air combat exercise at Clark Air Base Philippines. Cope Thunder has since moved to Alaska. We were part of a larger "gaggle" of 20 F-15s providing air cover against F-5 advesary air for a large strike package. Spear 3 filmed video and audio in an early generation Sony cam corder. Flight occured in 1985.
