I think there's been a squadron of F-22s at RAF Lakenheath for an exercise the past week or so?

Perhaps not coincidently, considering that the POTUS is visiting London from tomorrow. Would be nice to see them 'darn sarf' :-)

F22s have been deployed to Lakenheath until May, conducting training with other Europe-based aircraft.

They are from the 95th Fighter Sqdn based at Tyndall AFB, Florida.

Mach is short for Machynlleth, in Powys, Wales.
