Point Blank Exercise 2020 (Lakenheath and Marham)

Post by jalfrezi » Thu Sep 10, 2020 8:45 pm

Well, after an extremely quiet 2020 for obvious reasons, I decided I'd had enough of the same four walls and headed out to do some spotting - as there is a bit of variety in the UK at the moment. So, first up a glorious Wednesday evening at Lakenheath.

I hung around for the first of the night launches which was pretty spectacular.

Today (Thursday) I was at Marham for the USMC F-35s, sadly the weather didn't play ball and it was overcast by mid afternoon.

Fantastic set Nick! That light at Lakenheath is something else :O

Favourite has to be the second F-35 shot, brilliant angle :D

Great set but standing in line with the lights is not very bright. No pun intended.
