Re: Mildenhall + Lakenheath 07/08-08-2018

Great shot's, The Hall looked a lot busier than when I went in March. Apart from a local KC135 doing T&G's & a CV22 depart it was very quiet. Interesting that F15E 97-218 is carrying a 494th Panthers Badge, but it has a blue Tail stripe from the 492nd?

Re: Aviano F-16s

Are they here for a Exercise(NATO) or just to work with the 48th? The press release on the official Lakenheath website doesn't mention a particular exercise just 'interoperability' with other USAF units and NATO partners etc. http://www.lakenheath.af.mil/News/Article-Display/Article/1580390/aviano-...

And why is it, that if you park in a supermarket car park right at the back out the way of everything - dozens of empty spaces each side - that when you come back, someone has had to park right next to you?! Happened to us a few years ago. There was a double row of spaces with nobody else around. C...
