6x F-22 & 4x F-35 due Lakenheath Friday?

Posts on FC suggest the above are due in on Friday for a two week exercise. Usual caveats apply.

I would think Friday is more likely - gives them the weekend to rest.

Monday 9th is a public holiday in the States (Columbus Day). Usually a quiet day at the US bases...? :question:
And as the smart ship grew,
In stature, grace and hue,
In shadowy silent distance grew the iceberg too....

It's not just an Exercise with those assets mentioned. It's a joint RAF/USAF future tactics exercise which will involve RAF Typhoons and other aircraft.
So, i assume the 9th will either be a planning/classroom day or they will all fly... Don't know anymore than that.
