Night-flying will begin from RAF Lakenheath


Fighter aircraft from RAF Lakenheath will begin flying at night from next week.

Aircrews flying the 48th Fighter Wing’s F-15C Eagles and F-15E Strike Eagles are required to train day and night and during all-weather conditions to remain prepared for operations worldwide.

Night-flying training, which will begin from October 29, will provide aircrews the opportunity to use night-vision equipment and procedures.

This will continue until mid-December and will not go on past 10pm.
