I noticed this jet near one of the runways at Creech AFB. This is the base that is about 60 minutes from Las Vegas. This is where the AFB tests, does maintenance, and controls many of the drones seeing action overseas. This jet looked odd. I am wondering if it is some type of "dummy" to help with the training of the drone pilots?
As a follow up it does appear to be a SU 27 decoy that the USAF uses to train with the drones. It is a stationary target that the drones use to photograph.
