LFA7Roundabout

USMC to hit the Mach Loop/Roundabout

Recommended Posts

The jungle drums are beating in the UK planespotting community with the rumours of some USMC F-18's that are visiting Lakenheath to fly through the "Roundabout" in LFA7 in the coming weeks

If anyone would be kind enough to confirm this either way then please can you drop me a pm

Thanks in advance

Alex

Doesn't this question come up every year around this time? I never know the answer, but a search would yield those who have (and have not) given useful answers in the past.

Why I would know anything about the whereabouts of F-18s is still my guess; Even if I was using their call sign the other day...oops.

Do the search, buddy and see what you come up with. I know you've asked before, but I wouldn't expect much more than you gotten in the past.

"Where are your planes, and can I go there and count them?"

LFA7 is legit (anyone who has flown in England knows what his name means). He's gotten some great shots in the Mach Loop.

Easy. The briefing and scheduling requirements for non-UK based aircraft is in the Low Fly Handbook. Call one of the sq at Lakenheath or the MC-130 sq at mildenhall for the gouge. PM me if you need a number.

Like he said, call us, it's easy to set up, easier than flying low level in Germany anyways, and the US.

Edited to say PM me as well
