Blimey that makes me feel even older than I am !! Used to live in Lakenheath village and remember the change over !
But the USAF did look at another aircradft to replace the F111, it was called Tornado. They rejected the Tornado allegedley because of its lack of range.
The Americans with whom I worked persistently spelled it Torando!

A couple of photos of an F-15 at Lakenheath I took on a visit on 30 July 2009
Five from me taken at Lakenheath today, 23 February 2012. More to follow!
1 - New Tower
2 - Inside the Tower
3 - Busy day on the airfield
4 - Nothing like being buzzed by an HH-60 while on the balcony of the tower!
5 - Strike Eagles!
Great shots. Wish I'd taken my camera in 1982 when we drove past all the F-111's.
Great shots Rich, I worked in the building across the parking lot from the tower for 3 years and didn't know you could see the Fleltwell golf balls from there.
