Global Hawk coming to Robins

Robins Air Force Base is the first installation hosting an air Logistics Complex to receive an RQ-4 Global Hawk for paint and depaint work. Shown here, members of the 380th Expeditionary Maintenance Squadron complete post-flight checks on a Global Hawk equipped with a battlefield airborne communications node at an undisclosed location in Southwest Asia, April 1, 2017. The completion of this mission marked 1,000 consecutive sorties without a maintenance cancel while supporting Combined Joint Task Force-Operation Inherent Resolve. These remotely piloted aircraft have provided a critical communication bridge between multi-national Coalition assets working to defeat ISIS in Iraq. (U.S. Air Force/Senior Airman Tyler Woodward)
