This could be the most unique Dash 8 that I have ever seen. I almost thought that this must be another aerial firefighter variant as I was shooting Orion and Neptune of those kinds at my home town. From what I learn, this E-9A is used in the weapons evaluation program as a surveillance platform toward low-altitude, over-the-horizon radar monitoring of air-to-air missile firings and for range clearance, including detecting vessels which intrude into the Gulf Test Range during live missile launches.
