More Savannah Sentry Photos – 154th Wing F-22As

Archives

Since I was born in Hawaii, I couldn’t let Savannah Sentry go by without getting some photographs of the 154th Wing, Hawaii ANG F-22As that are in Savannah for the exercise.  I got an early start this morning by grabbing some breakfast at Sunny Side Up then making my way out near Savannah IAP, arriving a little after 0700.  Naturally, since I got an early start, the Savannah Sentry aircraft got a late start.  They didn’t start taking off until around 0900 or so.  The morning sorties consisted of 3 flights of two:  STINK 31/32, MAITAI 01/02, and GAMECOCK 01/02.  The STINKs went out and did some 1 v 1 work in the offshore SUAs and the MAITAIs and GAMECOCKs worked with FL ANG F-15s and SC ANG F-16s for intercepts.

While waiting for the F-22 activity, I caught up on some reading (Robert Gates’ Duty) and took some photos of some civilian arrivals from a spot near the intersection of GA 21 and GA 307.

STINK 3# flight was the first flight of F-22As to go out.  They departed Savannah IAP on 257.800 with Tower, then routed via 371.875 with Savannah Approach/Departure, 363.200 with Jax Center Millen/Savannah Low, then 284.500 with SEALORD.  After some 1 v 1 work offshore, they returned to Savannah IAP landing in between the departures of MAITAI and GAMECOCK flights.

MAITAI 01/02 departed Savannah IAP on 257.800 with Tower then routed via 371.875 with Savannah Approach/Departure, 363.200 with Jax Center Millen/Savannah Low, then 284.500 with SEALORD before going to 293.600 to work with FANG 0# (F-15C, 125th FW, FL ANG) and MACE 1# (F-16CM, 169th FW, SC  ANG).  GAMECOCK 01/02 departed Savannah IAP on 257.800 with Tower then routed via 353.7750 with Savannah Approach/Departure, 282.200 with Jax Center Jekyll Low, then 284.500 with SEALORD before going to 316.300 to work with SNAKE 0# (F-15C, 125th FW, FL ANG) and VIPER 2# (F-16CM, 169th FW, SC ANG).  After working with F-15s and F-16s, they returned to Savannah with the last aircraft on the ground just before 1100.  For the MAITAI and GAMECOCK arrivals I found a better spot between the airport and the intersection of GA 21 and GA 307.
