King Air 350 ER Special Mission Configured Aircraft

Below: The first MC-12W arriving at Balad airbase in Iraq was configured different from the special mission aircraft shown at the Paris Air Show. It didn't have the dorsal SATCOM dome, and, instead displayed several antennaes associated, probably, with other RF sensors. Note the EO dome in a retracted position, as required for take-off and landing. (Photo Below by U.S. Air Force photo/Senior Master Sgt. Richard Davis)
