As we approach the coast I watch in disbelief as a missile arcs up in front of me. Seeing the relative motion and noting that my missile light and tone aren’t warbling I can tell the missile isn’t aimed at me. Indeed, the unfortunate target is one of the F-15C CAP fighters.

A minute later the beach flashes by again and I’m over the Yellow Sea, feet wet! I take a glance at my fuel gauge and still see a fat 8200 pounds.

As we gain distance from the enemy coast I let our altitude climb slowly and order my wingmen into arrowhead formation for the flight home...

As we gain distance from the enemy coast I let our altitude climb slowly and order my wingmen into arrowhead formation for the flight home and they are soon in position off my wing.

...they are soon in position off my wing.

I keep calling AWACS for a threat update and eventually they come back with two different flights.
