U.S. Air Force Capt. Phillip McCoy, a 13th Fighter Squadron F-16 Fighting Falcon pilot and Komatsu aviation training relocation detachment commander, throws up the “panther paw” during an ATR at Komatsu Air Base, Japan, Oct. 1, 2019. Airmen with the 13th FS and Aircraft Maintenance Unit display the “panther paw” hand sign as homage to Eldridge, the 13th Tactical Fighter Squadron’s pet panther, during the Vietnam War, now represented as the official mascot of the 13th FS.
