I think the C's are now being kept at LK on temporary funding under the European Reassurance Initiative; an Obama administration temporary funding programme designed to mitigate against down-sizing at EUCOM in light of geo-political events in Ukraine and Syria. my understanding is the plan is still for eventual withdrawal of the Cs ?

This reminds me of the `Cold War` days when UK based F-100's were routinely rotated to Aviano and bases in Turkey and remember many times when Lakenheath only had 2 Hun squadrons in situ.
