I can confirm 603 in the 3rd flight. Somebody who'd photographed the take-offs gave me 303 as the missing one in the first flight, and 602 and 2000 (plus 300x !) in the second - he agreed with the rest JohnK has given.

I have been told ....

CUBE 31 Flt

91-0313 F-15E 494th FS
91-0309 F-15E 494th FS
91-0311 F-15E 48th FW
91-0324 F-15E 494th FS

CUBE 41 Flt

91-0602 F-15E 494th FS
01-2004 F-15E 494th FS
01-200? F-15E 494th FS
91-0303 F-15E 492nd FS

CUBE 51 Flt

91-0604 F-15E 494th FS
91-0329 F-15E 494th FS
01-2003 F-15E 494th FS
91-0603 F-15E 494th FS

However, there is conflict over 01-2000 as I have also been told it was 01-2002

Thank you - does your camera confirm the 4th was 91-0303?

Yes, the fourth one of CUBE 41 Flt was 91-0303. I agree with all of Glencoe's serials for CUBE 31 and CUBE 41 flights. I wasn't at Lakenheath when CUBE 51 Flt departed.
