Magnetic Anomaly Detector is my guess. To find subs and stuff. Otherwise some sort of survey.

Why are we looking for water in the Grand Cannon? I can tell you were there is water in the Grand Cannon with out spending a penny. Its in the Colorado river!

Anyone know how this contraption works? I bet it is hell to fly into icing conditions
It's not a near miss it's a near hit!!
