Spy-plane passes through Newcastle


An unusual visitor to Newcastle airport on June 30 was this extensively modified Beech King Air 350, N60125 (c/n FL-645), which made a refuelling stop before continuing to Marseille. The aircraft had been used as a trials aircraft for Boeing’s Ramis, the Reconfigurable Airborne Multi-Intelligence System, but whether it is still in that configuration is not known. After leaving France, the aircraft flew south to points unknown. Ian Tate
