Mike,

As I recall, the 5-post prohibition only applied to new members after the rule was introduced. It did not apply to existing members at the time of introduction. "KGee" joined in 2011 and was thus "exempted" from the prohibition.
Cheers, Bob

Thanks for that, sounds like that's what's happened. :thumb:

The F-22 and F-18s are here to fly with the 48FW not sure for how long but possibly for the next week. MOs I've heard start leaving tomorrow.

There is a NOTAM posted in this forum that indicates the Airfield is closed from today 17:00 until Tuesday. No ATC present. So a departure tomorrow is doubtful?

Another question, are the MO Eagles and Navy Hornets visible from outside the base?

Regards,
Jochem

Will Tuesday be back to normal flying or limited? Sorry if it's a newbie question.

You can see the MO's and the F-18s from the A1065 (Brandon Rd) not sure where the F-22s are parked.

Is there any update on the length of deployment of both the F18's and F22's

Saw a paste on a thread yesterday (can't find it now), notice from RAF Lakenheath that the AF-18s and F-22s were TDY 'throughout October' for an exercise, again on another thread somewhere for which I'm not going to trawl just now.

It is now officially called an „ Short Term deployment“ . Any thoughts on how long that will last ?!
