Second Hawk to Beale

The 9th Reconnaissance Wing at Beale AFB, Calif., has received its second RQ-4A Global Hawk unmanned aerial vehicle. The high-flying UAV arrived at Beale on Nov. 3 after testers at Edwards Air Force Base checked it out. This is the last of the Block 10 production Hawks; the new Block 20 RQ-4B has been at Edwards for systems testing since its Aug. 25 rollout at Northrop’s Palmdale facility.
