Remarks: Widebody Airborne Sensor Platform (WASP) - An airborne system housed in a modified DC-10. It has ultra high frequency satellite communication and performs target acquisition and tracking. This image shows the latest revision of the sensor array in the database.
Remarks: Ever shoot just one plane that makes the whole trip worth it? This classic is used to test lasers that detect missiles (maybe a sign of things to come on commercial aircraft?) and is part owned by the Missile Defence Agency and the Department of Defence.
Remarks: Delivered to American Airlines in 1972 as N124AA this DC-10 was later operated by Raytheon and became a test aircraft for the USAF and was fitted with equipment for monitoring hostile radio/radar signals and is also known as 99-0910
