Commenting in response to a post on the RAF Marham And Airspace Spotters Group page, resident Ed Jacks said: "One of my walking friends, who lives in Reffley was watching them too, did you see the Osprey just fly north to the east of town?"

Others commented to say they had seen the Typhoon in places such as Leicestershire, Long Stratton and Lakenheath.

There is plenty to see in the air right now with a squadron from RAF Marham also preparing for a training deployment to large warship, HMS Queen Elizabeth, at the beginning of June.
