I’m starting to like this new “Photo op” feature for the blog, especially with images like this coming in.
I received this photo yesterday from General Atomics Aeronautical Systems Inc. It shows the Guardian — a Predator B with a Raytheon SeaVue maritime search radar and (hark!) winglets — flying over the space shuttle Discovery in March, shortly before the April launch date.
So far, in a freakish coincidence, both photo op’s feature aircraft operated by the US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Agency.
Photo op: Guardian over the Discovery
