Heritage F-15 at RAF Lakenheath - John Bilcliffe

RAF Lakenheath - 2019:

The 48th Fighter Wing (Liberty Wing), based at RAF Lakenheath, have painted three of their F-15s in a heritage scheme.

"This heritage project is about the 48th Fighter Wing legacy, and more specifically the wing's support to the D-Day invasion during World War II," said Col. Will Marshall, 48th Fighter Wing commander.

The 48th Fighter Wing at Lakenheath consists of three squadrons of F-15s and one aircraft from each squadron has been painted in the new heritage scheme which features a chequered pattern on the nose, black invasion stripes down the wings, several national insignias and a Statue of Liberty painted on the tail.

97-219 - F-15E (492nd FS, 48th FW) - D/Day Red tail
84-010 - F-15C (493rd FS, 48th FW) - D/Day Blue tail
91-603 - F-15E (494th FS, 48th FW) - D/Day Yellow tail
G-THUN - Republic P-47D Thunderbolt 'Nellie'

The F-15s were painted in the skin of a P-47 Thunderbolt which was the primary aircraft used by the the 48th FW during its service in World War II.

492 FS were equipped with the P-47 Thunderbolt in early 1944, flying their first combat missions in the type in April 1944. The squadron moved into Europe after assisting with the Normandy invasions with bombing and ground attack.
