Flightaware is acting up so I didn't add a link, but it shows a WB57 flight out of RIV under a NASA Callsign. Anyone know what its up to? And why now EDW?

They are photo aircraft used during launches of the shuttles (or used to be). They have extreme long range tracking cameras. Big grin


The conveyor belt plane will fly
