Lone VMFA(AW)-533 F/A-18D(RC) noted departing SAV on August 2: number on the nose and tail was 17 (I can't seem to find any registrations matching this aircraft). Also, I was able to get airside with the ATAC jets on August 1. The Phoenix G-I, Kfirs (N402AX, N403AX, and N406AX), and Hunters (N325AX, N344AX, and another one that came after I left the ramp) all departed for Newport News that day.

HC-130J 16-5858 noted departing SAV earlier this afternoon. MC-130Hs 89-0282 and 89-0283 were parked on a remote stand near the local Civil Air Patrol squadron building. One MH-47G flew (didn't catch any serials) and returned after less than 20 minutes of flying or so.

A couple of corrections to the recent logs
89-0484 does not have a fin stripe but does have a 333FS badge

H60 coded 94 is 20583 not 20580

Another H60 is 20482 (read)

Visiting this morning were Draken International Let 159s N259EM, N264EM and N266EM

The Draken L-159s are parked at the Sheltair FBO. All 3 are "armed" with training (blue striped) AIM-9 Sidewinders.

The SJs went home last Friday (28th).

There were two 122FS/LA ANG F15Cs in that day

I read 78-0539 which stayed until Monday and I believe the other one was 78-0496 which departed Friday

Visiting that morning was VX-30 P3 BH-300. It didn't stay long enough for me to get over to read it. It showed as 162999 on SBS
