Good teamwork during the mock dogfight, too. Notice at 2:26 into the video, when the plane with the camera is chasing a lone F-15 that's pretending
to be a bad guy.
The camera plane's wingman makes a guns pass (simulated of course) on the bad guy's 2 o'clock, then makes a gentle right turn and extends. At 2:30
The bandit breaks left hard to go after the extending wingman, but the camera plane is still in his aft quarter. The bandit catches his mistake too
late, tries to split S, but apparently checks his dive short (perhaps to avoid going too low).
Another cool moment at 4:12, when a QF-4 punching flares confuses a missile. The missile began to track the right way, but suddenly darts straight
up. I'm not sure what missile it was. Since they're training against flares it's probably an AIM-9, but earlier in the vid they're shooting
AMRAAMs (the "fox-5" calls).
Very cool stuff. Oh, those poor F-4's. Thanks for sharing!
I'm gonna have Radar Love stuck in my head for the rest of the day now.
