I have to agree with Don. These do not look like F-15s. My first impression was they were Russian or possibly one of the French Mirage models. It would be great to get a USAF trained observer to look at the video for a more positive I.D. though. When that video allowed comments, someone said they saw the digital boxing around the images indicative of a hoax. Another thing to consider is that in that environment, that low, its hard to just look up and catch a jet going that fast. Usually you hear them, and it takes a few moments to find them.
