Cope Taufan 14, a biennial Large Employment Exercise which took place from Jun. 9 to 20 in Malaysia, was attended by U.S. F-15s from 104th Fighter Wing, from Barnes ANGB (Air National Guard Base), Massachusetts, F-22 Raptor stealth fighters from the 154th Wing, Joint Base Peal Harbor-Hickam, Hawaii, as well as several other aircraft belonging to the U.S. Air Force and Royal Malaysian Air Force, including RMAF MIG-29N Fulcrum, Su-30, BAE Hawk, and F/A-18D Hornets.

A new maritime exercise is currently taking place in the same region, involving U.S. Navy F/A-18E/F Super Hornets and Royal Malaysian Air Force and Navy: PASSEX.

Here are a couple of cool and rare images taken during Passex 2014 from inside a U.S. Navy Super Hornet while flying a mixed formation with the RMAF Russian aircraft.
