Coastal Georgia Military Monitoring Recap; August 2022

As some of you may know, July was a rough month away from the radios, so I didn’t post a July recap. August turned out to be a much better month with more opportunities to listen to the radios and those opportunities yielded some excellent listening. August 2022 saw a Bold Quest exercise based out of Savannah-Hilton Head IAP and Hunter AAF that included participants from the French Air Force and a German defense contractor. French Air Force tankers supporting the French fighters that went to Savannah went to Joint Base Charleston. Another foreign air force visitor was an Israeli Air Force 707 at Brunswick-Golden Isles Airport. Towards the end of the month, I caught the 157th FS, South Carolina ANG deploying from Columbia, SC to an exercise in Colombia. Closing out the month, a flight of B-52s transited over southeast Georgia.

A quick word on formatting. Starting with this month’s recap, I’ve consolidated some sections. Hunter AAF, Wright AAF, and Fort Stewart have been consolidated into one section. Likewise, Jacksonville IAP, NAS Jacksonville, and NS Mayport have been consolidated into one section. Columbia Metropolitan Airport, McEntire JNGB, and Shaw AFB have also been consolidated (North Auxiliary Field is in that section as well).
