The 48th Fighter Wing based in RAF Lakenheath, England, will again be performing a multiple jet practice flyover of Tottenham Stadium Friday, Oct. 15, 2021.

Two F-15E Strike Eagles from the 492nd Fighter Squadron and two F-15C Eagles from the 493rd Fighter Squadron will conduct a practice flyover in preparation for the approved flyover demonstration during the National Football League game on Oct. 17. The jets will take off and land from RAF Lakenheath on the day of the flyover.

The U.S. Air Force performs close to 1,000 flyovers a year, which serves as a way to showcase the capabilities of its aircraft while also inspiring patriotism and future generations of aviation enthusiasts. These flyovers are done at no additional cost to the taxpayer and serve as time-over-target training for our pilots, aircrew, and ground control teams.

Below are links to imagery from the flyover demonstration on Oct. 10, including footage from one of the aircraft during the flight:
