An RQ-4 Global Hawk remotely piloted aircraft last week arrived at Andersen AFB, Guam, its new home. Touching down on Jan. 7, it is the second of three Global Hawks that Andersen’s 36th Wing is bedding down to enhance US airborne intelligence-surveillance-reconnaissance capability in the Western Pacific. Andersen received its first Global Hawk back in September. The third one is expected soon. (Andersen photo caption by SSgt. Jamie Powell)
