  1. SNOWBIRD ops:

    162nd Fighter Wing, Arizona Air National Guard

    "Operation Snowbird" is a National Guard Bureau program located at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base and supported through the 162nd Fighter Wing. It was established in 1975 as a winter deployment site for Northern tier Air National Guard flying units enabling 16 squadrons to deploy for two weeks of training between October and May each year. Each deployment package consists of 10 to 12 aircraft, 20 to 24 pilots and 110 to 116 support personnel.

    The callsign ICE is a standard SNOWBIRD callsign.

    Hope this helps,
