Military Monitoring Recap; February 2017

Archives

The shortest month of the year, February was an interesting one. As has been customary the last few years, February saw both a Marine Division Tactics Course (MDTC) at MCAS Beaufort and a Sentry Savannah exercise at the Air Dominance Center at the Savannah International Airport. For the MDTC, assets from MAWTS-1, VMFAT-401, VMFA-112, and the 142nd FW, Oregon ANG came to the area to support training for aircrews from various MAG-31 squadrons. While on the subject of MCAS Beaufort and MAG-31, it seems that they are undergoing some frequency changes (see list below) for VMFA-115, VMFA-122, VMFA-312, and VMFAT-501 which I am still in the process of trying to work out. Sentry Savannah‘s participants this February were the 43rd FS from Tyndall, the 142nd FW from Portland (they were in Savannah for a total of three weeks), the 2nd FTS from Tyndall, and VFA-143 from Oceana.

Another interesting catch for February was what seems to be a new US Coast Guard C-37 testing out of the Gulfstream facilities at the Savannah IAP. Flying with the callsign COAST GUARD 202 its Mode-S code is AE5F07 and its callsign on Mode-S is C202. It’s worth noting that it was sending ADS-B data during its apparent testing.

An ADS-B track on COAST GUARD 202, which seems to be a new Coast Guard C-37.

While not military, it’s worth mentioning that one of the coastal Georgia area air ambulances has changed aircraft. LifeStar 1, the Air Methods air ambulance helicopter that flies out of Springfield, GA began using a new (for them) helicopter in February. They switched from the BK-117, N911MZ that they’ve been flying for years to a Bell 407 Jet Ranger, N406UH. N406UH’s Mode-S code is A4C4B5 and thus far it has not transmitted ADS-B data.
