Blue Skies at Lakenheath

Post by Seamus » Sun Sep 12, 2021 7:26 am

Morning all,

Further to my Mildenhall images, here's a selection of shots taken over a couple of days at Lakenheath last week. Priority here was catching the Reapers, who didn't disappoint, especially on Wednesday morning, giving us some great 06 departures in amazing light. Good to catch the Bolars boss jet to complete the set for me, as well as one jet still carrying nose art.

Absolutely top drawer shots ... glad to see the F-15C's and D's as I suspect their presence is short-lived :( Thanks for sharing them :thumbs:
