Combat Sent

Interesting what flies past when people are in bed. I just caught this RC-135U ( 64-14849 ) at long range westbound for the Atlantic; part of the 'Combat Sent' program of technical intelligence gathering.

Long-nose RC-135V 'Rivet Joint' aircraft pass over about once a week but the U-model is much rarer.
