Info on Air Force Special Ops Plane


#1

Military planes I’ve seen have mostly been tankers. But today this plane caught my eye since it is clearly stated as a Special Ops plane. From the looks of it and the fact it is a Fairchild Dornier 328 I’m curious if anyone knows more about it, what kind of tasks it would perform (in general terms of course), etc. Here is a link https://flightaware.com/live/flight/N307EF/history/20170203/1835Z/KEGI.

Thanks.

Thanks, I found the first site, but not the second which has more information.

Like how the passengers it carries are often in civvies, you can sometimes keep a lower profile if your ride is similarly outfitted. Think along the lines of the SOCOM mission of foreign internal defense.
