Possible Mach Loop visit

Post by Sled Driver » Thu Sep 09, 2021 2:58 pm

Hi folks!
After the US Labor break is Lakenheath back up and running again?

Was thinking of chancing a long overdue trip to Cad West in the hope of see some F-15s fly low there. Either tomorrow or Monday next week weather permitting travelling from Birmingham. 🤞🏽

Back at work Tuesday :(

Might chance Lakenheath tomorrow and perhaps The Loop on Monday. Keeping an eye on the weather always!

I intend going to LKH Monday as that weekday has been quite reliable recently in terms of action. I have typically seen at least 15 takeoffs and landings before lunch. Doesn't mean they will always go to the loop though.

A brilliant day at Lakenheath yesterday. Wife is sorting the pics and videos now. Will get some on Flickr and FC as soon as I can 👍🏽
