Thanks for the post. You are absolutely correct! After listening to the individual clips again I realized my error: Sabre 41 first reports to Groom control at 10,000ft (after taking off from GROOM). They then confirm to TTR tower that they are airborne, likely for co-ordination with the Knight formation coming from there. The report that Sabre 41 is heading NORTH to re-join with Knight flight (which at this time is on the eastern border of EC West) is further evidence that Sabre 41 is coming from Groom.

When Sabre 41 takes the lead it is during the Echelon formation of the four F-117 for a good camera angle.

Thank you for pointing that out. It also explains a few other pieces of the puzzle that until now just did not want to fit anywhere.
