While this Eagle (84-0010) may look like an F-15E due to the dark grey it is in fact an F-15C. It's the second RAF Lakenheath squadron to receive a heritage scheme for the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings after the 492nd FS.

Nice find on the Sea Hornets, Mirth. Not a well known aircraft at all, but you can see the Mosquito influence.

That looks like a P-47 paint scheme.
