Lakenheath F-35s 28/03/2024

Hullo again.

I visited The Mound at Mildenhall on Thursday and in the absence of much movement at Mildenhall, I spent much of the time staring over at Lakenheath, which seemed a lot more exciting that day.

Anyway, I was hoping someone might be able to help out identifying the F-35s that I saw, I'm pretty sure that it may have only been two aircraft that were doing circuits.

From my photos I have:

1 at 13:04 (Banking left towards Mildenhall before heading away)
1 at 13:06 (Climbing in a right bank away from Mildenhall)
1 at 13:10 (Left bank towards Mildenhall before turning away)
2 at 13:11 (One banking towards Mildenhall before turning away with a second appearing in a downward left bank, looking to be doing a low pass in line with the runway of Lakenheath towards Mildenhall)

I'm not sure how useful the above information is (and I definitely missed a couple having failed to photograph them) but hopefully someone might be able to fill in at least one missing ID.

I also caught two F-15s: 01-2001 and 91-0308, I believe at 13:30 and C-17 09-9211 departing Lakenheath at 13:55

As always, thank you for any and all assistance.
