Shaw Air Force Base may be having an ORE (Operational Readiness Exercise). F-16s from the 55th Fighter Squadron and the 79th Fighter Squadron have been flying missions to Townsend Range, the Bulldog MOA, and W-161/177 the last few days. On return from these missions, they have been heard making mission reports on the Shaw Command Post frequency. The actiivty on the Command Post frequency in particular seems consistent with ORE/ORI type traffic.
