Expanding NATO’s joint intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) capability, Northrop Grumman Corporation and its industry partners together with NATO leaders unveiled the first NATO Alliance Ground Surveillance (AGS) aircraft to an audience of customers, distinguished guests, employees and community leaders on June 4, 2015 in Palmdale, California.
The unmanned aircraft, a wide area surveillance Global Hawk, is part of a broader system of systems solution that will advance the Alliance’s evolving ISR needs during a full range of NATO’s missions such as protection of ground troops and civilian populations, border control and maritime safety, the fight against terrorism, crisis management and humanitarian assistance in natural disasters.
The full NATO AGS system consists of air, ground, mission operations and support elements, performing all-weather, persistent wide-area terrestrial and maritime surveillance in near real-time.

There are so many curtainside trailers out there you've probably been next to one and didn't know.
Now if you really want to see something fun, hang out near Long Beach. Once a week a Hornet fuselage minus cockpit, wings, and elevators comes out of production heading to St Louis to be completed.
I was waiting for a red light to start moving from side to side on the front of that thing like a cylon.
