Interesting...I have no idea...my guess is that its some kind of avionics testbed, but don't quote me on that...

aircraft belongs to Raytheon, so avionics testbed could be right

Isn't Comco connected with networks and computer systems? Maybe it's just advertising.

COMCO! It's the commies! Run!

On an aesthetic note, interesting how they so prominently displayed the "Boeing 757" logo. Whoever they are, they're proud of their ship. As I would be.

Perhaps a Raytheon VIP transporter?...maybe COMCO is a corporate services division of Raytheon that holds common assets such as this aircraft. Whatever the case may be, it looks like a helluva nice ride!
