Looks like some kind of EAW system. Could be the AF is testing a cheap alternative to the E-3 for use in anti-drug operations in Latin America.
The configuration of the antennae looks almost identical to the aborted Nimrod AEW&C version, with the addition of what look like Infra red sensors or possible chaff/flare dispensers.

That plane sure looks interesting.I am seeing this for the first time and have no information about what it is,but when remembering F22 fighter plane's nose shape was tested on a B757,it comes to my mind that it can be another test bed for some new airplane or equpment.Thats just an opinion though as I said I am seeing it for the first time.WING

It's a secret plane used to communicate with aliens. The aliens are giving the US Government and businesses technological advice. In return, the aliens are allowed to live in freedom throughout the western US.
