New SPDYR mission

Around 19:00 CET the Italian Air Force Beech B.350ER SPDYR (reg. MM62300) landed in Decimomannu AB after a surveillance mission carried out some where over, probably, western Mediterranean Sea.

We do not know exactly where it carried out its activity because the flight was performed with the ADS-B transponder switched off.

We can assume a mission over the western Mediterranean (between Sardinia, the Balearic Islands and Algeria) as you can see in this old track of an old mission carried out by Italian SPDYR.

The Beechcraft 350 SPYDR is a twin-engine turboprop aircraft used by the Italian Air Force for intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance missions. The aircraft is equipped with advanced sensors and systems, including a synthetic aperture radar, a high-definition electro-optical camera, and a signals intelligence system.

The SPYDR is based on the Beechcraft King Air 350 and has been modified to meet the specific requirements of the Italian Air Force. It has a range of over 2,000 nautical miles and can stay airborne for up to 8 hours.

The SPYDR is a valuable asset for the Italian military, providing real-time intelligence and surveillance capabilities that are critical for modern military operations. Its advanced sensors and systems allow it to gather information and provide situational awareness to ground forces and other aircraft, making it an important tool for the Italian Air Force.
