Mysterious airplane (possible RQ-180) – Photo by Rob Kolinsky
A mysterious military aircraft was discovered while flying over Edwards Air Force Base, California. The plane, which many believe is the RQ-180 drone, was registered by photographer Rob Kolinsky, who posted his photos on his official Instagram.
“This thing flew over my house a few weeks ago and I still couldn’t identify it,” Kolinsky wrote.
The RQ-180 drone is manufactured by Northrop Grumman. The main task of the RQ-180 is the long-term detection of high altitude.
Some even say that the RQ-180 bears some resemblance to the B-21 Rider, the future USAF bomber.
Today, the drone is fully operational in the USAF and “has larger dimensions and more capabilities than the Lockheed Martin RQ-170 Sentinel drone,” according to the Def Post website.
