N567G was noted parked outside a modifications hangar. The aircraft is registered to L-3 so it appears to be a special mission jet. Future operator is yet unknown.

The KC46 was from NH ANG (Pack 91) and was in for Northern Strike 21, a medical exercise at KSAV. There were also a C17 from WV ANG, a KC135R from OH ANG and a C130H from MO ANG

From SBS
the C17 could have been 03-3123 Decoy 84
the KC135 could have been 63-7993 Eddie 95
the C130 could have been 90-1798 Jesse 98

All four were seen on the ADC ramp on Wednesday 4th but I couldn't read serials from the terminal

1-) 2 VMFA-115 Hornets stopped by (1 F/A-18C, 1 F/A-18D) along with what appeared to be a VMFA-533 CAG bird (F/A-18D) and another F/A-18C whose unit I wasn't able to read off (presumably either a 115 or 533 aircraft).
2-) A G550 CAEW (N967GA) was parked in front of the blast fence near Runway 1/19 (next to Savannah Aviation). Its future operator is unknown but it could either be a USAF EC-37B Compass Call or an RAAF MC-55A Peregrine.
3-) A USAF C-130J-30 (18-5917) arrived as "OCEAN89" from KNTD and was observed offloading some cargo after parking near the Air Dominance Center.

Thanks for the heads up on the C130J, I had a run down this morning and it is still parked up. It is unmarked but is presumably CA ANG based on call sign and where it came from
The F/A18s are
VMFA-115: 165197/VE-11 and 164723 no marks
VMFA(AW)-533 164957/ED-00 (white tail) and 164973/ED-973

Yesterday AC130J 15-5882 did several touch and gos as "Spooky 42" serial from SBS and not read

Interesting to see that there are multiple at SAV and not just one or two
