I swear I just saw a Global Hawk UAV.

I am outside of Reno, NV USA and there is only a Naval Air Station close by.
Granted this is NV so there are TONS of strange aircraft flying here but in the middle of the day. Does the NAVY use these too?

Wow it was flying at a moderate altitude so it is totally probable that I am wrong. Plus it was flying Due west.
Only Travis AFB and a huge ocean that way.


Not many aircraft have that type of wing profile.

I know that, but I doubt this one was tasked for me.

Cool looking aircraft.

Were you wearing your foil cap?

Best to wrap your cell phone in foil as well! That's probably how they found you!

Wow, I have actually parachuted from one of those, it was a marine aircraft and dang, it wasa blast, best jump I ever made.

The OV-10 can be crammed with 4 paratroopers in the back. I was number one, they guy with a seat belt and my legs were hanging out the back of it the whole time, take off and flight. The plane flew tree top level, fast, then went full throttle and started straight up, whoa!! the G force was cool. Once we hit altitude, and I saw the green light, I undid my seatbelt and we all fell out of the thing!!!! very cool aircraft...very cool jump. Go Airborne!

Heck, build your own UAV!

Here's mine! Took it back to the Navy Aux. Field Sunday and got two check flights in! First time I had flown in 15 years! It was exhilerating to shove that throttle stick forward and go vertical after the roll out!

Now I want to build a substitute cockpit for it that holds my little video camera! :grin:
