It seems to come back to this new Army spy plane http://www.thedrive.com/the-war-zone/8752/yet-another-version-of-the-u-s-armys-new-spy-plane-appears-in-arizona

The SHADY66 made me chuckle.

What do you think?

Some tracking history on SHADY

SHADY UH-1N 30th SPW, Vandenberg AFB, CA
SHADY RQ-5B/MQ-5, B/224 MI BN Ft Stewart GA
SHADY MC-12W, 224 MI Bn Hunter AAF GA

The MC-12 isn’t all that provocative.

MC-12W Liberty
USAF version modified for the Intelligence, Surveillance & Reconnaissance (ISR) role; 8 King Air 350s and 29 King Air 350ERs. In service since June 2009 in Iraq and Afghanistan. Currently being transferred to US Army.

Sat behind one on departure from KALB a few years ago…

Here’s some fun with callsigns

Not really all that strange,lot’s of new birds all the time and SHADY was revived callsign from OV-10 Broncos,who did the same thing years ago.
