Half of RAF Lakenheath is already high resolution - much clearer than the overlay. F15s can clearly be seen (48th Fighter Wing). Nuclear weapons are now stored in Weapons Storage Vaults in some of the Protective Aircraft Shelters (PAS's) rather than in the older weapons storage areas. There are reputed to be 110 nuclear weapons at Lakenheath.
