Thread: Nothing to do with stalking - low flying aircraft in NR16?

    Nothing to do with stalking - low flying aircraft in NR16?

    Nothing to do with stalking, but did any one just see the low flying aricraft over NR16 in south Norfolk? An escorted AWACS with two jets followed by a refuelling aircraft trailing a cargo plane, 4 jets in formation, then a single fighter?

    Obama is in Europe next week, according to the news, so this was probably the secret service coming in to do the security checks, deliver the armoured cars etc, and have their assets in place to escort AF1 in to the relevant air space.

    They only use USAF locations - as they don`t trust anybody else to handle their requirements, which are probably quite onerus.

    I did see them flypast over Waddington and Scampton yesterday. Voyager, VC10, Tornadoes and a Typhoon.

    Yes, that would be it. It was an impressive site and it makes sense as we are not far from the USAF bases in Lakenheath/Mildenhall.
