A brand new and flashy single engine turboprop powerful aircraft which is still in prototype stage has made its debut at the 2009 International Paris Air Show. This show is going on from June 15 to June 21.
The Air Truck AT-802U, manufactured by a division of agricultural plane manufacturer, Air Tractor, Inc. of Olney, is being touted at the air show as one of the most versatile aerial platform designed to perform counter-insurgency close air support and intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance missions. A plane that is perfect for Iraq, Afghanistan and many other missions to come.
The AT-802U is based on the popular Air Tractor AT-802 agricultural plane, but has been customized as a light attack capability against fixed, stationary and moving soft targets.
