1/144 E-8 "Joint Star" USAAF - Minicraft
The last B-707’s produced were purchased by the United States Air Force and the U.S. Navy in the early 1990’s . The reliable 707 proved to be the ideal aircraft to carry aloft the newly evolving electronic command and control radar systems needed for modern warfare. The E-8 Joint Star has proven to be yet another integral component in the command structure of military forces for real time command and control of ground forces and theatre electronic surveillance.
Markings included in this kit are:
- USAF E-8A JSTARS, 116th ACW, Georgia Air Guard
- USAF E-8A JSTARS, 93 ACW, Operation Desert Storm, 1991
