Global Hawk Arrives at Museum

The Museum of Aviation in Warner Robins, Ga., received a retired RQ-4 Global Hawk Block 10 remotely piloted aircraft for permanent display. The aircraft, which accrued more than 7,000 combat hours before its retirement, arrived at the museum on Sept. 20 after its cross-country transport on board a C-5 Galaxy from Beale AFB, Calif., to Robins Air Force Base. The museum intends to place this Global Hawk on elevated display in November in its Century of Flight Hangar. This aircraft “represents a modern mission that the Warner Robins Logistics Center supports, and [it] represents some of the latest technology and missions of the Air Force,” said Ken Emery, museum director. The Museum of Aviation is now the second museum in the Air Force to obtain a Global Hawk, after the National Museum of the US Air Force in Dayton, Ohio. (Robins report by Jenny Gordan)
