Four more F-22A Raptors due into Lakenheath for attachment until May 2016.
Spent a number of hours at a very quiet base, then it all errupted with F-15E's departing about two hours before the pending guest arrivals. Had to endure the quiet and a hail storm, but it was all worth it in the end.
MCD F-15E Strike Eagle 98-0131 United States Air Force 492nd FS, RAF Lakenheath, UK, FLEX 62 aborts its departure after an engine blow out. Note that one engine is off After Burner. I missed the actual back fire.
