Today saw a lovely trip to RAF Lakenheath both outside and inside the wire. This is just a quick small selection of my highlights from today. More shots will follow over the next day or so -

1. F-15C landing after an early morning sortie

Cracking shots. What was the reason for the visit - organised tour?

Thanks for all the comments so far. I've edited a few more for your enjoyment. I've tried to stay away from the usual Lakenheath angles for something a bit different (except the tonka again!)
