US Army helicopters have visited an airbase in Suffolk for refuelling.

The UH-60M Black Hawk helicopters are part of the 1st Battalion, 214th Aviation Regiment at Wiesbaden in Germany.

They stopped for refuelling at RAF Mildenhall while passing through on the way to their next location.

They sat on the runway on March 15 as maintainers and aircrew prepared them for takeoff.

Black Hawks are four-blade, twin-engine military helicopters that can be used for MEDEVAC, search and rescue, aerial firefighting, combat assault and more.
