Fly me to the moon – RAF Sentinel taking off

A nice shot from the UK’s Defence Images library here of a Raytheon Systems Sentinel R1 taking off earlier this year. The aircraft, a heavilly modified Bombardier Global Express business jet, is with the RAF’s 5 (AC) Squadron. It’s pictured here taking off from RAF Waddington on its transit to RAF Akrotiri, Cyprus on Operation Ellamy during a full moon.
