NATO Global Hawk fuselage done

NATO says the fuselage of its first Global Hawk Block 40 unmanned aerial vehicle has been completed. The fuselage was completed at Northrop Grumman's Moss Point, Miss., plant and is being sent to California, where work will be completed. The aircraft is one of five for NATO's Alliance Ground Surveillance project and will provide intelligence to deployed and non-deployed operational personnel. The Global Hawks and flight control stations will be located at the AGS main operating base at Sigonella Air Base, Italy. (Source: UPI, 08/05/14) Previous
