    A few weeks ago I spent some time in California. I visited San Fransisco for one day, not knowing that it was fleetweek and there was a nice airshow going on. We could snap these pictures of an F-15 flyby:

    When I lived in the Bay Area I went to the City for the Fleet Week show every time it was on...... Love that town. Wish I was there to see the new aquarium.....

    F-15 for Fleet week? Sure it's not an F/A-18?

    Oh yes, it's an F-15 alright. Quite sure of it. You can even see the air-inlets which are angled and square.
    This one made more noise on his own then the 6 F/A-18's of the Blue Angles together.
