American fighter aircrews stationed in the Fens are set to start night- flying excercises.
A spokesman for the 48th Fighter Wing, based at RAF Lakenheath, near Ely, said nocturnal training sorties would begin on Monday and continue until mid-December, but that the flights would not be conducted later than 10pm.
“The 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,” he said.
“The night-flying training provides aircrews here with the opportunity to fly and maintain proficiency using night-vision equipment and procedures, which they could not do during daytime hours.”
