Lakenheath Airbase EGUL

The scenery here is UK2000 VFR Airfields Volume 2, which I believe is the original version as there is now an updated Version 2. The screenshots are from a Saab J37 Viggen, which is free ex-payware by AlphaSim (now Virtavia)

Lakenheath airbase is mainly a US airbase operating 48th Fighter Wing F15 Eagle air superiority fighters. In the second World War, it was used as a backup base for Mildenhall due to Luftwaffe bombing campaign and also setup as a decoy to divert bombing from Mildenhall, which is very close.

From the Aerial view, notice the 9 hole golf course located within the airbase, the village of Lakenheath should be be right behind the golf course, but is missing from this scenery.
