Good eye...it was an F-15D! I was stationed at Elmendorf AFB in Alaska, 12th Fighter Squadron. I was not a pilot, but enlisted flight line maintenance supply coordinator/expediter. As a thank you from my supervision, I received a ride along on a combat training sortie (air to air) the day before I was reassigned to a different base. Too much to go into here, but I got to fly it several times, and sustained 6-8.5 Gs sustained several times without losing it (practicing basic fighter maneuvers). It was a ride of a lifetime!
