Strike Eagles At RAF Lakenheath
January 26, 2022
January 5, 2022 - Scenes of U.S. Air Force 48th Fighter Wing F-15E Strike Eagles conducting flight operations at Royal Air Force Lakenheath (RAFL) under a blue sky. The Strike Eagle has the second highest payload of all fighter aircraft in the U.S. Air Force’s inventory, second only to the F-15EX.
Aircrew train as often as possible in order to maintain their skills and remain ready for anything that they may run into during combat operations.
The 48th FW at RAFL is the U.S. Air Force only F-15 (F-15E and F-15C) fighter wing in Europe that brings unique air combat capabilities to the fight, such as the most advanced Joint Direct Attack Munitions used by the F-15E. It provides all-weather, day or night air superiority and air-to-ground precision combat capability and multi-staged improvement program avionics.
When teamed together, the F-15E and F-15C provide an air combat capability never before seen in the history of airpower.
