A look at training at the Combat Readiness Training Center

Posted: Updated:

Right here in Savannah, Military Aircraft from across the nation are training at one of America's most high-tech facilities.

Operation ‘Sentry Savannah' is a history-making event for the Georgia Air National Guard and for the Savannah area.  It involves dozens of planes flying hundreds of missions over the course of an entire month.

"This is the first, and we hope the first of many, of these very large exercises- multiple airframes, multiple platforms, combat exercises that are going to take place," says the Georgia Adjutant General, Major General Jim Butterworth.

Operation Sentry Savannah continues through the end of February.
