Savannah – Earlier today, two E-2D Hawkeyes visited the Savannah area to do some approach work at Hunter AAF. Each one did several Ground Controlled Approaches at Hunter AAF on 134.700 followed by ILS approaches on 124.975, Hunter Tower. After their pattern work, they departed to the north cleared to MCAS Cherry Point on 132.925 with Jacksonville Center.
I got a visual on them as flew past the house on approach to Runway 28 at Hunter, but they were too far away to get photos. Paul, KJ4FAV was able to get some nice photos of both as they flew over his house. The last four digits of the bureau numbers and the modex are clearly visible on both.
In other military aviation news, a new Sentry Savannah exercise began this week. I’ll have another post up sometime tonight or tomorrow morning with more information.
