American F-15 fighters normally based at RAF Lakenheath in Suffolk have been moved to the nearby airbase at Mildenhall while runway repairs are carried out.

From September 13th, 12 of the all-weather tactical fighters will be based at Mildenhall for two and a half weeks. The USAF say a minimal number of missions will be flown unless they are absolutely essential and Mildenhall's noise restrictions will be applied.
