It's possible, but has the VIP claim been confirmed? The only places I've seen it have tied back to Iranian sources. The fact that they only recovered two bodies, and no one is saying anything about more passengers or crew makes me think it was a training flight or an FCF with only the flight crew on board. Or maybe repositioning for maintenance.

I'd consider all the accounts, including the unnamed US official statements, as highly suspect under the circumstances, that's all.

Thats where my head was, it only said 2 bodies were found, not 2 found and 2 missing. So perhaps there were only 2 on board.

What is normal crew for one of these on operations (does it have stations)?

Sounds like the aircraft works autonomously and a global hawk has the same type of equipment.

Why would it have VIPs on board, thats not its role?

According to statements the aircraft was at 42,000 feet and radioed a mayday.

There was an unconfirmed report of an Air Force C-27J crashing the same day, but the AF doesn't operate the C-27J. The thinking is possibly a UC-27B. But it still hasn't been confirmed.

You've got this (C-27, frequently used by SOCOM in the theater) and the VOA report of five dead in the crash. There's a lot floating around which hints we may not be getting the full story. And probably won't.

maybe i missed it but why was Iran saying all their nonsense ? like 12 dead(i dont think you could fit 12 people + equip in any safe way) Iranian VIPs etc.


i was on a gulf stream earlier today and i know they arent the same aircraft but there is NO way there were more than 4 people on there.

what happened to the other 2 people?

It was either an FCF or training flight with just flight crew.. Counting this aircraft, all four Global 6000s the Air Force owns are in Afghanistan. So when they get new volunteers to fly them they have to train in country.
