Just as interesting, are the four objects along a road just NE of that facility.Interesting looking facility they are circling. Looks like multiple radar systems on the ground. Maybe a test range?
Would be interesting to know what it is.
You can look at the site on google earth. It's a electronic warfare training site. Couple of radar antennas, buildings, propane tanks, solar panels.would be awesome to either drive out there and see whats really out there...or wait at twin falls airport and see who gets off the plane. This stuff really intrigues me. If I ever win the lotto these are the things I would do.
There would be nothing like being under threat of running out of gas and being eaten by coyotes to go see it in person.You can look at the site on google earth. It's a electronic warfare training site. Couple of radar antennas, buildings, propane tanks, solar panels.
The database Flightradar24 is using for aircraft details has not been updated to reflect the USAF now owns this aircraft. Sierra Nevada Corp is the company that has converted many civilian aircraft for military use. They've done it with these D328s and many B350s. These aircraft often are still using the civilian hex code after the conversion. Same happens with Dash-8s converted to Army use by Dynamic Aviation | Innovation Takes Flightfreqhopping... So whom would Sierra Nevada Corporation be? Think the aircraft is being leased by the AF? In reading the plane didn't do well for Horizon/Alaska back in the day but the Special OPS folks seem to love this model to the point of cutting away the main fusalage and replacing it with carbon fiber, for something like a 3500 lbs weight saving. HUGH! for a plane like this.
