It was a fantastic day in the loop on February 17th, and the first low level outing with my new Sony X160.
The temperature was below freezing for the first part of the day but SHIFTY flight from the 48th Fighter Wing warmed us all up!
These jets were from the 492nd Fighter Squadron, the Madhatters based out of RAF Lakenheath in the UK.
Two F-15E Strike Eagles from the 48th Fighter Wing at RAF Lakenheath make the trip around the loop on May 28th 2015.
This video was shot at Cad East.
EAGLE11 gave us two nice passes on Wednesday 13th May 2015 as they hurtled through the Bwlch pass.
A singleton followed a bit later but I didn’t catch his call sign.
Just playing with Final Cut X and made this interesting slow motion take off of a USAF F-15E Strike Eagle.
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.

Pretty much the last thing you want to see if you’re standing on Cad…

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.
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.

This was one of very first low-level videos I uploaded, back in 2010. It just so happens this is my favourite subject to film as well 🙂
