RAF Lakenheath has been given a clean bill of health after a rigorous two-year inspection.
The base was this week pronounced as “highly effective” after extensive testing and analysis under the unit effectiveness inspections (UEI)programme.
The UEI rates a whole organisation rather than just individual units, meaning the base as a whole was given the second-highest mark possible.
“This is important for the Air Force, and it’s critical for us at RAF Lakenheath,” said Col Kyle Robinson, 48th Fighter Wing commander.
“To say we’re highly effective overall...that’s huge! We’re doing the mission with solid leadership.”
