In October 2016, while the QF-4s were on their pharewell tour at airshows, they flew from NAS Point Mugu, CA to Hill Air Force Base, UT. Along the way, they transitioned through the low level mountainous training area affectionately called "Star Wars Canyon". Geographically, it is called Rainbow Canyon in California's Death Valley. Militarily, it is called the Jedi Transition. Because of that terminology, the name "Star Wars Canyon" has become the norm.
