Commando Solo is the EC-130J (00-1934), operated by the 193rd SOS out of Harrisburg Air National Guard Base, in Pennsylvania (using a "Steel"
callsign). It came to light during the Libyan crisis, as a psychological warfare aircraft. It's capable of broadcasting over radio and televisions
in a given area, as well as dropping leaflets and other means of psych warfare.
It's incredibly rare to get to see inside one of them (or it used to be, I've only been on them twice, once at an airshow when half the aircraft
interior was covered up as classified). Amazingly the Air Force has published pictures taken inside 934 during Emerald Warrior at Hurlburt Field on
I'm actually shocked that they published these. Until the mid-late 90s, they wouldn't even open a door that you could see into the cargo
compartment of the aircraft if people were around. The one and only time I've ever seen civilians allowed on it was at an Open House when they flew
one in, and they only let you see the radio and television consoles (although I got to go on one another time when everything was uncovered). It's
an amazing aircraft capable of doing all kinds of tricks.
