Driving Past Creech AFB

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.


  1. check out about 40-50 miles north of creech. 3 round things in the ground, possibly targeting assists?

  2. also, check out the following: 36degrees 40'35.41"N 115 degrees 37'49.58"W elev 935. looks remarkably similar?
