  1. Mach Loop Thurs 30Nov17 - Photographer

    Hi all, especially any Lakenheath folks. I am a published aviation photographer and as the wx looks great this week I will be in the Mach Loop (aka 'The Roundabout'), this Thursday 11/30/17. Appreciate any heads up, happy to send any high-res pics in return. Either contact me through this site, or via email to alexjlovell@hotmail.com.

  2. LFA7 Mach Loop

    Hi all, Havn't had the time to post on here for a while due to work commitments but still an avid follower. For those of you that don't know me I am a UK based lowfly photographer that frequently 'haunts' the Mach Loop in Wales, UK. If you are after any pics or videos then I should be able to locate these for you if you can supply tail #'s and dates etc, or if you are able to give a headsup of intentions then I am happy to make the journey up to Wales to get some decent photos. My work can be found on Flikr (alexlovell2011). Thanks in advance Alex
  3. Hi, Some of you will be aware that I am an aviation photographer here in the UK and can often be found up the mountainsides of the Mach Loop On 16th March 2009 I photographed 91-0306 & 316 @ Cad East and to date these are my best photographs. For record purposes I was wondering if anyone would be able to point me in the direction of getting the Callsigns for the aircraft on that day, or even make the aircrew aware that I have some great images from that trip. I have been in touch with Lakenheath directly but unfortunately they only hold this sort of information for a couple of years. Thanks in advance Alex
  4. Low Flying UK - not in the Mach Loop

    Just to prove that the Mach Loop is a tiny part of the UK's low flying system. These GR4's were photographed in the Brecon Beacons at the southern end of LFA7 yesterday 1. Wolf 12 _ALX3909resize 2. Wolf 11 _ALX3896resize 3. Wolf 12 _ALX3906resize 4. Wolf 12 _ALX3907resize
  5. Lakenheath flying w/c 26Oct15

    Hi all, I plan to visit the Roundabout/Mach Loop next week, but am aware of squadrons flying nights/maintenance/away at the moment. Anybody able to clarify if there is a chance of some USAF lowfly next week please? Many thanks, keep up the great work Alex

  7. Some excellent weather, and an awesome video. Please get in touch if you were the aircrew today as I know there are some great images from the flights that I can get to you. Should be able to tie up with the aircraft in the video too, if you know approx times or obviously callsigns (I believe it was Shift, Rico and Brew flights). Great Work 48th FW I'll happilly make the 6 hour round trip to film/photograph you guys again, so feel free to offer any headsup in return for hopefully some great images for the squadron bar
  8. 11Jun14 - USAF deployment to Fairford UK

    Yeah - I noticed that paint (or lack of) and was trying to get a picture showing how bad it was. Is it common and is there any reason for it?
