I just passed the old USAF/ RAF base at Sculthorpe between Kings Lynn & Fakenham & there was a V-22 Osprey on exercise over it.
The UK brought some V-22's to support Special Forces just last year, but it may have been an American aircraft, as I was not close enough to see any markings on it.

The V22s and C130s use Sculthorpe most evenings
The UK hasn't bought (or leased before that idea is suggested) any V-22s. There are several reasons the UK and USAF have exchange pilots and the Daily Fail is great at making 1+1= "whatever we feel like as we can barely write let alone do maffs"

Sculthorpe nearly became the UK's 10 Mile Island or Chernobyl in the 1960's. A USAF Sargent held a armed Nuclear warhead hostage at gunpoint, when the pressures of life got to him.
And in 2014 close call between RAF & a USAF was reported on there, it is still used for all sorts.

Edited to add security at Sculthorpe has always been strange. Pull off the road near it's fence & it's not long before a nondescript vehicle or sometimes two, also stops not far away.

Claw 41 has also been out over the Northsea from what looks to be Mildenhall.

The Falcon 20 is one of many Cobham aircraft based at Teesside out on a training exercise.

Usually seen out over the North Sea with Typhoons and Tornado's simulating dogfights, hijackings, radar jamming etc.

Must be one hell of a job....

Not with a Falcon 20. the us forces I believe are and were looking out for the sub threat with a range of dedicated aircraft. the Falcon 20 however is this https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dassault_Falcon_20
