In the past we’ve tracked USAF Global Hawk making SIGINT missions over eastern Mediterranean Sea but this is the first mission that we’ve the track made by an USAF General Atomics MQ-9 Reaper.
The drone is departed from NAS Sigonella watching Mig-29’s at Khmeimim Air Base in Syria (see the article here) prior to their transit to Libya. The flight was made at an altitude of 22k feet with the callsign JACKT17.
The tracking of the mission was made by Arjen Peters.
