Military Flights 11-3

Didn’t catch everything yesterday – but we continue to have some busy skies! Monkeywerx had some good info on his show: Watch here

Northrop Grumman RQ-4 Global Hawk is a high-altitude, remotely-piloted, surveillance aircraft. The Global Hawk performs duties similar to that of the Lockheed U-2. The RQ-4 provides a broad overview and systematic surveillance using high-resolution synthetic aperture radar (SAR) and long-range electro-optical/infrared (EO/IR) sensors with long loiter times over target areas. It can survey as much as 40,000 square miles (100,000 km2) of terrain a day, an area the size of South Korea or Iceland.

Boeing RC-135 is a reconnaissance aircraft designed to support theater and national level intelligence consumers with near real-time on-scene collection, analysis and dissemination capabilities.
