I see f-18s all the time, the Blue Angels are based just down the road at Pensacola.Soon as someone can post a better picture, it should be a lot easier to determine.....Its also definetly not the new Eurofighter...
Ever do time in Kadena?

Doesn't look like any US based fighter to me. A Russian, putting Russian Fighter Planes over City Hall and the Liberty Bell... nice implication.
