I spy Boeing’s Phantom Eye

Phantom Eye Edwards copy.jpgBoeing is close to flying the liquid hydrogen-powered Phantom Eye unmanned aircraft system, as Flightglobal’s UAV and Space editor Zach Rosenberg reported yesterday.

Boeing did not release any new images of the high-altitude spy aircraft prototype, but that’s ok. Thanks to Google Earth, we don’t need it.

It used to be that only aircraft like as the Phantom Eye and military satellites could play the overhead reconnaissance game.

Those days are over. Now we can spy on the spymasters.

Google’s GeoEye satellite service snapped the Phantom Eye on a ramp on the edge of the dry lakebed at Edwards AFB in December.
