This is about a civilian airliner and no matter that the US Army blows it up its still a CIVILIAN plane, so why has this Topic been moved to the Military Forum?

Not a mod.

But what task is set with blowing it up?
Is it civil interest ( FAA, NTSB, ... ) or is it military research project?

According to the Skyliner listing, it states

ferried 10sep19 RUH-MCI, to be blown up at APG by US Army in experiment sponsored by DHS


DHS is obviously Homeland Security - so yes, it should be civil interest.
