RAF LAKENHEATH, England — A small group of F-15 fighter jets from the 48th Fighter Wing departed Thursday for the United Arab Emirates to participate in the 2005 Dubai International Aerospace Exhibition.

The air show, now in its ninth year, annually draws hundreds of exhibitors from dozens of countries, and has expanded to a larger site for the 2005 show, according to the show’s official Web site.

The Lakenheath jets will be part of aerial demonstrations and on-the-ground static displays, and will return to England sometime next week, a spokesman for the wing said Thursday.
