LKN Photo Diary

Post by 747flyer » Thu Jul 22, 2021 10:08 am

I managed to visit RAF Lakenheath a number of times during the last couple of weeks or so. Slowly working through them and thought I would post a few shots that I was fortunate enough to grab.

Some cracking shots there Neil! Can't beat 06 when the Reapers play ball - and the weather too :D

Just a small point, the first shot is the Grim Reapers not the Madhatters :)

Very nice indeed

The Green Triple Nickel Luggage pod did look very striking when the AV went home on Friday
