I've seen only one of those, at REC. I think it's based there. But in any case, it probably flew to Portugal or Cape Verde, then on to maybe Egypt or Jordan and finally Dubai.

Speculation only, though Portugal/Cape Verde is likely.

Also, anyone knows why the EMB 145 RS/AGS does not have winglets?

The Wing tips apart from saving fuel may have extra antennas in them

Where as The 145RS has slur Pods that the Wingletts mite cause Problems with as in Masking some of the SLAR Pods Scanning area.

For directional Stability extra tail Strakes have been fitted!
