I assume the F-15s are in the foreground since the photo probably wouldn't have been taken from behind the MIGs bit would like assumption that confirmed. Also, when and where was the picture taken?

State of Alaska, USA, August 1, 1989 – High above beautiful Earth, United States Air Force (USAF) F-15 Eagle fighter jets intercept two CCCP (Soyuz Sovetskikh Sotsialisticheskikh Respublik, or Union of Soviet Socialist Republics and abbreviated as USSR) Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-29 fighters. The Soviet MiG-29s are, for the first time, traveling to the Abbotsford International Airshow in Abbotsford, British Columbia, Canada, to participate in the August 1989 airshow. The USAF F-15 Eagle interceptors actively guarding North American and United States of America's airspace are with the 21st Tactical Fighter Wing, headquartered at Elmendorf Air Force Base (AFB), Alaska, assigned (going up through the chain of command) to Alaskan Air Command (AAC), Alaskan Command (ALCOM), United States Pacific Air Forces (USPACAF), United States Pacific Command (USPACOM). Both Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-29 "Fulcrum" fighter jets and the Antonov An-225 Mriya "Cossak", the large heavy support transport aircraft, refueled at Elmendorf AFB and continued on their journey to Abbotsford, British Columbia, Canada.
