Ten Louisiana Air National Guard F-15 Eagles from the 159th Fighter Wing/122nd Fighter Squadron, arrived at RAF Lakenheath P.M. on Thursday 12th June. Eight of them departed on the 13th June for Bulgaria with the remaining two departing on Saturday morning. It is possible that they will return to the USA via Lakenheath after the conclusion of an air defence exercise with the Bulgarian Air Force.
