Tidbits from Both Sides of the Fight

More on Canada (Maybe) Offering Civilian “Ear in the Sky” Help in AFG

with one comment

Remember this one on Canada modifying 2 planes to send to Afghanistan for surveillance work, possibly using non-military contractors?

Could this be one of the planes, spotted in the U.K. (with photo shared via the FighterControl.co.uk forums), on its way to AFG?Public records (PDF) say it’s registered to Top Aces, a company already providing “bad guy plane” services to the Canadian ForcesPublic records (PDF) also show it’s one of two King Air 300’s the company has owned since October 2009.  A U.S. news release says the conversion bid for 2 King Air 300’s was awarded in November 2009.

Stay safe, and good hunting, folks.
