RAF Lakenheath has warned residents that there will be training exercises running later than normal for the next three nights.

The operations will run tonight, tomorrow and Wednesday, with jets returning to the base around midnight.

A spokesman from the base said: “The 48th Fighter Wing is scheduled to conduct night training missions from RAF Lakenheath May 19-22, 2014.

“The nighttime flying operations are required to maintain aircrew proficiency and ensure our pilots remain ready to meet future challenges.

“Due to summer daylight hours and airspace restrictions, 48th FW aircraft will be taking off and landing later than normal, with some aircraft arriving back at the installation around midnight on the scheduled dates.”
