The Hercules aircraft will fly a little later than at present but weekend activity will be kept to a minimum. Emergency flights will also be arriving, together with


Galaxy aircraft from the Gulf. However, this additional air traffic will be offset by a large number of Lakenheath aeroplanes and personnel being deployed to the Gulf for 3-4 months.
Squadron Leader Turner announced this was his last meeting due to being transferred to Q8 for six months.
Cllr Mr N A Vant: thanked the Squadron Leader for his tolerance and good humour. The members wished him well in his future career.
Cllr Mr V E Ashley: was concerned about the risk of fatal accidents under the flight path of RAF Lakenheath because of observers stopping on roadside verges.

Cllr Mr S J Edwards: was concerned about the traffic lights at the entrance to the RAF Lakenheath main entrance being inefficient. Lights controlling the entrance show green when no traffic is leaving the Base. The filter right light also shows green when no traffic is turning from the main road into the base.
Squadron Leader Turner: said he will bring these matters to the attention of the Base Highways Authority.

No member of the public wished to contribute to the Public Forum.
