C-12 86-0080 is assigned to Holloman AFB. The C-12 is a military version of a twin engine Beechcraft. If you see a Beechcraft flying, it might be
military, or it might be a small time executive on business or a corporate employee shuttle. This particular Beechcraft is modified with two rails on
the bottom for attachment of "stuff". Stuff can be whatever fits the weight limitation of the aircraft.
It left Creech AFB to fly a round robbin (departure and arrival airport are the same). This is common for flight training or flight tests. However,
there is no C-12 flight school at Creech AFB, so this was a test. Of what, I don't know. Even though Creech is quite visible from route 95, it isn't
like there are geeks hanging out their taking photographs. So I don't know what was on the rails, if anything.
It flew to near the Trinity site, so maybe it has gamma detectors on it. The loop near the CA/NV border isn't known to me to be a radioactive area,
though Kelbaker, which isn't all that far away, has a uranium mine.
