Kawasaki makes the good times roll!
Great shot! Five stars isn't enough!

Very well done, Sajima!

Beautiful capture!

Looks to me like the flock trailing the big guy consists of a couple of Phantoms, a couple of F-16's and 3 F-18's. I don't recognize the small birds right up close to the big guy's tail.

The small birds right up close to the big guys tail are some variety of A-4 Skyhawks, I believe.
Absolutely not A-4 Skyhawks, they look more like Kawasaki T-4's.
Chuck the so called F-18's are really F-15 Eagles.

Jim is correct...

and the two jets that look like a F-16 are Mitsubishi F-2 types.

Are those F-4 Phantom IIs there?
