As the U.S. Air Forces in Europe's largest fighter wing, the 48th Fighter Wing, also known as the Liberty Wing, brings unique air combat capabilities to the fight, providing all-weather, day-or-night air superiority and air-to-ground precision combat capability as well as combat search-and-rescue capabilities. Along with providing worldwide responsive combat air power and support to meet our nation's and international allies' objectives, we are also devoted to our community, which extends well beyond our gates and into the villages, towns and cities many Liberty Airmen call home.

speaker's bureau

The RAF Lakenheath's speaker program gives Air Force personnel the chance to directly interact with its neighbors in the community, professional organizations, schools, businesses and civic organizations. Our speakers consist of personnel from a wide-array of job descriptions and include personnel from the rank of airman first class to colonel.

Most organizations request speakers to talk about the F-15s, RAF Lakenheath's mission, and specific job descriptions or personal experiences in the Air Force. Your organization may request those topics listed above or anything else you feel appropriate. We will try to match up a speaker to your specific request.

If you would like to schedule a speaker for one of your organization's meetings, please email the public affairs office at 

Please allow at least five weeks prior to your meeting date when making a request.
