    Help for a newbie re - RAF Mildenhall & RAF Lakenheath

    Hi all,

    I must apologise, as I feel something like an imposter: I would not class myself as an aviation enthusiast (but the signs are beginning to show after increasingly frequent trips to Duxford). I am planning to take my family to see the planes at RAF Mildenhall and RAF Lakenheath as part of a trip to Cromer. I understand that planes don't really fly there are weekends but if I turned up on Friday or Monday (11th or 14th August), should I target a particular time of the day or are planes fairly frequent? Also, given the tensions between the US and North Korea at the moment, would I be wasting my time anyway?

    Apologies if I'm asking stupid questions but I'm a total novice and I don't want to take my 3 year old there, have him excited and then disappoint him.

    Many thanks to anyone who has taken the time to read this,

    Iain
