Sentry Savannah Update; 6 February 2017

Brunswick – The first Sentry Savannah exercise should continue this week. The units involved so far are the 43rd FS from Tyndall, the 142nd FW from Portland, the 2nd FTS from Tyndall, and the VFA-143 from Oceana operating from the CRTC/Air Dominance Center at Savannah IAP along with the 169th FW at McEntire and various KC-135s as tanker support. I haven’t had the chance to get out to the airport to get some photos, but a reader has been kind enough to pass these along:

Since my first post last week, I’ve had the chance to listen a few more times and have some updates for the frequency/callsign list. The 142nd FW F-15s may have left on Friday or over the weekend, but I’m not sure yet (in past exercises, some of the units have swapped out weeks). I won’t have the opportunity to listen today, but I’ll be back in Savannah on Tuesday and should find out then.
