Footage and photographs have emerged of the Japanese Kawasaki C-2 Electronic Intelligence variant (also dubbed “RC-2”) operating at Iruma Air Base, north of western Tokyo, Japan.

The aircraft, a heavily modified baseline C-2 tactical transport aircraft with a modified nose section and large fairings top of the tail, fuselage and sides of it, as well as several antennas underneath the fuselage, is serialled 18-1202 and was first spotted undergoing taxi tests and first flights at Japan Air Self-Defense Force base at Gifu, home of JASDF’s Air Development and Test Command and Kawasaki Heavy Industries facility, at the beginning of February 2018. The C-2 ELINT is going to replace the obsolete JASDF’s YS-11EB ELINT aircraft.

So when is someone going to bring out a kit of the C-2? Then we can have a conversion kit for the RC-2! What’s the hold up Hasegawa?

Nice pics and article, thanks for posting.

Northrop Grumman Corporation #PegasusXL rocket will launch from the belly of a Stargazer L-1011 about 50 miles off the east coast of Florida. This will be the sixth launch this year for NASA's Launch Services Program.

As I was watched the ISS orbit overhead this morning, why not post the reason why you can spot it very easily.

Today's #SpaceStation20th fact: The acre of solar panels that power the station means sometimes you can look up in the sky at dawn or dusk and see the spaceship flying over your home, even if you live in a big city. Find sighting opportunities at http://spotthestation.nasa.gov !

Says something about cooling the station that there's about as much square footage dedicated to radiators as there is to solar arrays.  The truss assemblies with the solar panels and radiators were interesting projects to work on when I contracted at Rocketdyne.  I think I can still point to the individual truss segments there.
