Release Number: 020611

6/28/2011 - ROYAL AIR FORCE LAKENHEATH, England -- RAF Lakenheath F-15s will be temporarily housed at RAF Mildenhall while runway repairs are accomplished.

"We have taken proactive steps here to mitigate the noise footprint on surrounding communities," said Sqd. Ldr. Richard Fryer, RAF Mildenhall station commander. "A minimal number of missions will be flown to reduce noise but still maintain essential operations and training. Additionally, the aircraft's flight paths have been adjusted to avoid unnecessary noise above and around Ely Cathedral."

RAF Lakenheath's runway will be closed until approximately July 18. The HH-60G Pave Hawk helicopters will continue missions from RAF Lakenheath and will not relocate to RAF Mildenhall.
