Increased flying operations in East Anglia

ROYAL AIR FORCE LAKENHEATH, England --

Communities in East Anglia and surrounding regions may notice increased noise from military aircraft as the 48th Fighter Wing conducts increased flying until Thursday.

These operations demonstrate our capability to rapidly generate air response and provide aircrew and support personnel stationed at RAF Lakenheath the experience needed to maintain a ready force capable of ensuring the collective defense of the NATO alliance.

The exercise does not include plans for low-altitude flying in the area. All training will be conducted in accordance with Ministry of Defence and U.K. airspace regulations.

Please contact the MOD at SWK-lowflying@mod.gov.uk with any aircraft-related flying concerns.
