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.
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.
