Sentry Savannah July 2018 Update

Savannah – I haven’t had a lot of monitoring time, but I have been able to listen to a few more morning sorties and other listeners have contributed what they’ve heard, so I’ve got an update for what should be the last couple of days of the current Sentry Savannah exercise. Paul, KJ4FAV also provided a photo of COPPER 03 (KC-135R, 64-14831, 161st ARW), the Arizona ANG KC-135 providing tanker support for the exercise.
