U-28A transport aircraft

A U-28A plane, painted in a civilian paint scheme, about to touch down on a landing strip. The U-28A is a variant of the Pilatus PC-12. It is flown by the 319th, 318th and 34th Special Operations Squadrons, AFSOC and can operate from airstrips that the bigger, heavier MC-130 series of transports cannot. The aircraft is typically used for intelligence gathering, reconnaissance and surveillance operations. The U-28A is fitted with a weather radar and a suite of advanced navigation, surveillance and communications gear.
