Thank you for your interest in the RAF Lakenheath's tour program. The 'Liberty Wing' welcomes visitors to the base; it gives you a better understanding of the 48th Fighter Wing's mission in East Anglia and gives us a chance to meet our neighbors.
Base tours are held on the first and third Fridays, 11:30-3:30 p.m. We are unable to accommodate visits on a weekend or U.S. holiday.
The purpose of our base tours are to provide visiting personnel a better understanding of our mission, and receive an up-close look into what it takes to keep our base operational. Our goals are to increase public awareness and understanding of the armed forces and the mission, policies, and programs of the U.S. Air Force.
Photos can be taken of certain entities on base, however, the tours are NOT designed to be used as a photographic event. We aim to show your group a full spectrum of areas on base and this may include areas such as static displays, operation support units and static memorials.
If your group is interested in photo opportunities, RAF Lakenheath provides a viewing area optimal for photographs over-looking our flightline. For directions and more information about the area, please view this link.http://aircraftspotting.co.uk/suffolk-airports-airfields-viewing-guides.php.
*Please note: An individual may attend a base tour only ONCE every 2 years due to the high volume of requests.
