Commando Solo departs RAF Mildenhall

Seen departing RAF Mildenhall on the 23rd April 2014 is 01-1935 an EC-130J Commando Solo from the 193rd SOS / 193rd SOW based at Harrisburg Air National Guard Base, Pennsylvania. These EC-130J Commando Solo aircraft are used for Psychological Operations as their speciality is to broadcast across AM, FM, HF, TV and military communications bands. They were widely used in the Libyan war broadcasting messages to the local fighters and government forces but they don’t always play a role in war time, they have been widely used for civilian affairs broadcasting as well.  © R y a n  D o r l i n g
