F-15's in training shooting down F4 drones, pretty nice

Great video!

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.

That was a great video. Although I couldn't really tell what the pilot was doing most of the time, it was still really cool.
