Offutt crew resumes aerial photography flights over Russia

An Air Force jet piloted by an Offutt-based crew is flying the first aerial photography flight over Russia in more than a year under the Open Skies Treaty, Pentagon officials confirmed, marking a return to some limited military cooperation between the two nations.

The OC-135B flew from Offutt Air Force Base to Japan late last week. On the way there, they picked up a team of monitors from the Defense Threat Reduction Agency to staff the expensive “sensors,” or cameras, mounted in the cabin of the four-engine jet. It flew on to Russia on Monday.

The observation flight was scheduled to take place Friday and Saturday local time (Thursday and Friday in Omaha) and begin in Khabarovsk, in the Russian Far East, according to the Russian Defense Ministry.An Air Force jet piloted by an Offutt-based crew is flying the first aerial photography flight over Russia in more than a year under the Open Skies Treaty, Pentagon officials confirmed, marking a return to some limited military cooperation between the two nations.
