Fighter Jet Escort on Air Force 2, Formation Flight

Background: A formation flight from Los Angeles to San Francisco that we had arranged. I wanted to go for the B757 this time rather than the B747, hence the callsign change to Air Force 2. We originally had 2-3 other A-10 aircraft that were going to join us, but nonetheless, it was an amazing flight.

Detailed Information: February 11th, 2021; Casual Server; 1 hour and 10 minutes of flight time; KLAX>KSFO.

Escort Aircraft: @T4ir5ty as Viper 16 / F-16
@BhuvanBruh as Lufthansa 999 / F-22
@United_1 as Eagle 3101 / F-18
@N916WK /F-18
(I, unfortunately, couldn’t find the names of the other aircraft that were with us at the beginning.)
I would like to thank them for their time, had a lot of fun, looking forward to flying with you guys again soon.
