20th anniversary of F-15E arrival at RAF Lakenheath

On February 21st 1992 the 48th Fighter wing at RAF Lakenheath received their first F15E strike Eagle, 20 years on, the 10th February 2012 there was a celebration flight to mark the anniversary, I aimed to be there at dawn and was a bit stunned at the snow when I woke up. The roads were OK though and I got there well before the light started to creep up the sky, and not long after I heard the first engines starting up. The crisp frost and dawn light made for some great photography!
