RAF Lakenheath : Saturday 2nd April 2016 - Banter Ops Photography

A rumour had been circling for about a week that some ANG F-15's would be dropping into RAF Lakenheath on route to Frisian Flag at Leeuwarden, which starts on 4th April 2016.

Eight F-15C's and D's were due in total, but four turned back for an unknown reason, leaving just four arriving at Lakenheath in the late afternoon sun.

Almost missed them as we had believed that thye would arrive via Runway 24, but about ten minutes before they arrived, we heard it was going to be Runway 06. A speedy dash in the car was made to the end of the runway. Not an ideal location taking in regard the sun, but at least they were captured on camera.
