RAF Lakenheath a Day at the Fence

January 25th 2018 Page 2 of 2

 

 

My first trip out in 2018. I'd been checking the weather forecast for ages, it had been grey, cold & miserable for weeks,

then, a ray of hope, Thursday 25th January 2018 was forecast as being blue skies & sunshine all day,

so, decision made, I decided to head off early that day to RAF Lakenheath.

 

I arrived at RAF Lakenheath just after 8.30 AM. There were 7 Boeing F-15C Eagles lined up on last chance.

So, no time for coffee, I headed for the fence. The sun was shining and the sky was blue! :-)

 

The morning turned out to be entirely the C version of the Eagle from the 493rd Fighter Squadron, 'The Grim Reapers',

then around midday the E's appeared, from the 492nd & 494th Fighter Squadrons, 'Bolars' & 'Madhatters',

in total, around 20 F-15E's took off one after another.

I must admit I can't remember seeing a busier day at the fence in a long time.

The activity turned out to be pretty much non-stop, which was great, it was a tad chilly though, but a real

advantage with this time of the year is the light can be simply gorgeous.
