Grand Forks AFB enables historic trans-Atlantic flight

An MQ-9B SkyGuardian glides beneath the clouds July 10, 2018, over Grand Forks Air Force Base, North Dakota. General Atomics Aeronautical Systems and Northrop Grumman Corporation, both tenants of Grand Forks AFB’s enhanced-use lease, launched the SkyGuardian with support of the 319th Operations Support Squadron. The SkyGuardian’s flight is the first trans-Atlantic flight for a high-altitude, long-endurance remotely-piloted aircraft. (U.S. Air Force photo by Airman 1st Class Elora J. Martinez)
