Andy Jacklin snapped the servicemen in action from his home in Trimley St Martin before posting the images to Facebook.

He wrote: “USAF out to play on Felixstowe coast.”

American air force personnel practice parachuting every few months in Suffolk, depending on the weather.

The county is home to a large military presence, with RAF bases such as Mildenhall primarily supporting American forces.
