From  Air Force Magazine on line.......Noble Eagle Sorties Mount: Operation Noble Eagle, the homeland air defense effort begun after the 9/11 terrorist strikes, has conducted 46,780 sorties. That's a combined total of fighter, tanker, surveillance and reconnaissance aircraft, and Civil Air Patrol sorties.  NORAD oversees the operation, which is directly managed by the Air National Guard-led Air Force North/1st Air Force at Tyndall AFB, Fla. Of the total 34,300 fighter sorties, more than 70 percent have been flown by ANG or Air Force Reserve Command aircrews. And, Air Guardsmen and Reservists have flown more than 79 percent of the total tanker sorties.

WAWG and ORWG participate in these missions by acting as intercept targets for the fighters. IN the early days of the mission we use to do TFR flights in the pacific northwest and even flew radar calibration mission for Naval base Bangor and other areas of the state to help them identify holes in the radar coverage.
