Four Raytheon Texan II's have routed via Goose Bay and Frobisher Bay and are in SondreStrom, Greenland at the moment en route to Europe.

I think they are probably factory new aircraft on a delivery flight.

Interesting that there's no definitive news about where these birds are going. I could understand that if we were talking deliveries of jet fighters but even today that's not kept all that hush hush.

As near as I can tell in a quick look there are only two open orders for these planes which would fit the flight so far.

Israel

or

Iraq

Neither will be a big press release deal.

Would not be suprised if final destination is a new US allied Air Force in the middle east rebuilding.


I would help you but it is not in the contract
