Comco 757-200 At ABQ

Thu Mar 08, 2007 7:23 am

I found another strange flight on Flightaware. The Comco 757, registered N226G, came in from DPG and then overnighted in ABQ. It is now in flight from ABQ to BFM. Is this a military charter? Does anyone have any info about Comco? I can't find anything about them on the internet.

COMCO has a connection to Raytheon Services....which in turn has a contract with the DHS. Very hush-hush.

I believe the actual lease holder is something called L-3 Capital out of Helena MT....which is the same address as Raytheon....in Helena MT. (I didn't know Raytheon had offices in MT, but there are a couple of photos in the DB of the aircraft in Montana...)
They have another 757 N610G...an aircraft that was originally bound for Azerbajian Airlines.

As to what it was doing in ABQ?....no telling, and no one will tell either.

This aircraft has been spotted on *Extraordinary Rendition* flights...shuttling persons suspected of crimes against the U.S., around the world.

When I googled the registration, N226G came up on a list of *purported* CIA flights...I will not attest to any validity of this site, only providing for discussion purposes. The main page is in German, which I don't speak so well...

These are about as mysterious as the elusive all-white 757's which are DHS planes with the designation of C-32B. I have two pictures on my website of registrations 00-25001 and 00-09001 both in Nashville within a few months of eachother. Why? Who knows, but they are an eye catcher when you see them.

Quoting Stirling (Reply 1):

So that would be why those planes visit TUS from time to time. They don't park near Raytheon though, they park on the executive ramp. Raytheon does have some ramp space and a hangar near their buildings. The planes also seem to frequent Crestview, FL a bit. Something to do with Eglin AFB maybe?

I have a pic of N226G taking off from TUS on January 27 this year.

I have tried embedding it and just including a normal link, but Airliners is being screwy right now  Angry , so I will have to post it later.
I love ASO!
