RAF Lakenheath Base Tour – 29th April 2016

I was lucky enough to spend the day with the 48th Fighter Wing at RAF Lakenheath back in April 2016. It was a huge privilege to get up close and personal with these front line aircraft and their crew.

Thanks so much to those that made it happen. It will be a day that I’ll remember for a long long time!

Low level F-15C ‘Grim Reapers’ – Mach Loop – August 2017

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.

Lakenheath’s Grim Reaper F-15Cs 493rd FS low level in Wales – 7th July 2017

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.

Early morning Grim Reapers

My brother and I spent a day at RAF Lakenheath in Suffolk, England, on January 10th 2012. Another awesome day which began with a mass launch of F15C Eagles from the 493rd Fighter Squadron.

Unfortunately I had some audio related issues for the first hour of the day, due mostly to excitement, but rather than bin the footage I thought I’d do something more fun with it.

I know it’s wrong but it’s also oh so right! 🙂 I hope you enjoy.

A day with the 48th FW at RAF Lakenheath

14th December 2011 was a very busy day at RAF Lakenheath in Suffolk, UK. In addition to the 60 or so F-15 movements we also had a Danish AF CL-604, two USAF HH-60s and a USAF KC-135.

Although my brother and I have been visiting Lakenheath for around 20 years this is the first time with my new video camera, a Sony HDR-SR11E so please forgive some of the shaky camera work and the few audio issues. These will be fixed next time!

All footage was shot with the HDR-SR11 and edited with Final Cut X.
