Hi everyone. Wasn't sure where to post this. I am coming up to East Anglia for a few days and thought I would drive up to Mildenhall and Lakenheath to do some spotting. I haven't been to either of these bases before so I was wondering if any of you could give me some advice.

Where is the best place to park up? Am I likely to see any take offs/landings, I will be going up this coming Tuesday?

I saw on a thread posted a few years ago there is a car park by some traffic lights, but I have no knowledge of the area so any information from you would be really appreciated.

Many Thanks

Your C-17 was 04-4136 of 305AMW (McGuire)

The five MC-130Js on "SOG Row" would have been 10-5714, 11-5731, 12-5759, 12-5760 (arrived back at 14.17) and 13-5786. 13-5778 did not return until 16.28.

Of the other three MC-130Js, 11-5737 and 12-5757 are on deployment, and 11-5733 is in the US.

Hope that helps,

Bob

True but in my defence the links will show the original question poser that Thunder and Lightning also cover lots of other airfields and is a great resource for the spotter

Your two missing KC-135Rs were 71483 (nothing to do with the SJs) and 38026 (which brought the 1st lot over)

Is this the only daily log place for Mildenhall?
