Military Presence – Ukraine 02-26-22

Normally I don’t spend much time looking across the ocean – but I was curious about flights near Ukraine today.

Monkeywerx has more detailed info and stays up to date on the situation.

This is the USAF 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.

These are air refuelers – which usually means there are fighter jets in the area.

We also have our west coast covered

Royal Air Force – Airbus KC2 Voyager (their air-to-air refueler) – with 2 fighters.

Italy Air Force – 767-2EY is also a refueler

Russian Air Force – Ilyushin II-76MD (Military cargo planes)

BTW – take a look at these 2 maps showing 1. Russian missile strike locations and 2. US Biolabs in Ukraine. Turn of the news. This isn’t Russia against Ukraine. This is good against evil.
