Good Afternoon all,
I just wanted to make you aware that a press release has been issued today, about a USAF exercise taking place next week, which involves a number of military bases in the UK, including RAF Fairford. The exercise will take place between 11 and 13 February, and will involve limited flying at night. During these dates, you may see and hear aircraft taking off and landing at RAF Fairford, transiting to training areas over the North sea, which could take place several times between sunset and sunrise.
Please click on the following link to see the full release https://www.lakenheath.af.mil/News/Article-Display/Article/2074063/48-hours-of-limited-night-flying-for-usaf-in-east-anglia-and-gloucestershire/
Please note that we are able to give advance notice of this activity as it is a training exercise involving other USAF units in the UK. However, we are unable to routinely give advance notice of all airfield activity at RAF Fairford, much of which involves real-world deployment.
You can follow activities at RAF Fairford via the 501st Combat Support Wing Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/501stCSW
If you have any queries, please don’t hesitate to let me know.
