I wish I could have posted this earlier, but between work and some home issues, I haven’t had the chance. F-35As from the 62nd and 308th Fighter Squadrons from Luke AFB are at the Georgia Air National Guard Savannah Air Dominance Center at Savannah-Hilton Head IAP along with F-16s from contractor Top Aces. The 62nd FS and 308th FS train Danish, Dutch, Italian, and Norwegian Air Force F-35A pilots, so the F-35s are a mix of Danish AF, Dutch AF, Norwegian AF, and USAF aircraft. Top Aces is an F-16 equipped contractor who provides aggressor aircraft for US Air Force training. They arrived late last week or over the weekend, so they’ll likely be at Savannah for about the next two weeks or so.
If you want to listen to them, they’ve been flying late morning and midafternoon sorties out to the Special Use Areas off the Georgia coast for air combat training. They’ve been using frequencies used by aircraft that visit the Air Dominance Center for air-to-air and NORAD frequencies for the offshore training.

They have been joined on the morning sorties the last two days by F-15s from the Florida Air National Guard’s 157th Fighter Squadron at Jacksonville. The 157th FS F-15s have been using one of their usual callsigns, FANG and 234.800, one of their usual frequencies for air-to-air.
