The 33rd FW is sending its F-35As to SAV for Exercise Savannah Shift from Eglin AFB. The wing announced that its maintenance airmen have already arrived in Savannah, meaning that the jets are soon to follow. I'm not sure yet if any other units will be participating in the exercise besides the 33rd FW and 165th AW.

US Navy T-45Cs 167093,165471, 167095, 165086, 167077, and 167078 were noted at SAV on Sunday (08/13/2020). 167093 was parked at Signature while the other aircraft came and stopped by before taking off again. 7 T-38Cs were parked at Signature as well. I read off 67-14848 but didn't get any others since I was prevented from photographing any more tail numbers after being spotted by some Signature ground crews. Finally, an MC-130J (13-5770) came just after sunset and did some touch and gos.

Sorry Ksavspotter cannot assist with C40 parking. Seen landing as I was departing at around 13.00 local Saturday. Also re your seventh F35 seen Sunday, 7 arrived Friday as per your list plus 10-5014. This aircraft was not seen by myself when visiting Saturday and I heard that another F35 may have arrived on the Sunday when AL F16s came in.
Cheers

The AL F16s and EG F35s left on Wednesday and the T38s left today.
Arriving today were 12 125FS OK ANG F16s. For some reason I can’t post from my computer but as soon as I’m able to I will post serials.

Back at the end of August I heard the following UH60s on the scanner ferrying from Hunter to the port at Savannah. Despite several trips to look for them I could not find them on the ground, they did not use the area that the helos returning from Europe used. I assume they have shipped out now.
27320, 27329, 27330, 27331, 27332, 27333 all heard August 31st.
