Always a pleasure to see RAF Lakenheath’s 48th Fighter Wing low level in Wales with their F-15s. These C models, callsign GATOR 11-14, were from the famed 493rd FS ‘The Grim Reapers’. Interesting to note the Sniper Pod on the lead jet.
The 493rd Fighter Squadron, the Grim Reapers, paid us a visit on the 7th July in the Mach loop with their F-15Cs. These guys really are impressive at low level, and this was the first time I managed to capture them in The Mach Loop.
A single F-15D from the mighty 493rd Fighter Squadron, the Grim Reapers, makes an impressive departure and unrestricted climb from RAF Lakenheath on April 29th 2016.
Footage from January 15th 2014 of an F-15E Strike Eagle on take off from RAF Lakenheath, UK. The footage shows a dramatic AB blowout at normal speed, 30% original and 5% original.
The event itself only lasts around 0.2 seconds, the pilots reaction is fast and decisive.
