"Dragon 55" taxiing to parking at RAF Fairford during a swap over. This aircraft is in a Senior Span configuration - A Pod, Ruby Sensors under the wings, an array of aerials underneath and a CDL below the tail pipe.

  1. I have no idea what a "Ruby Sensor" might be, but the pods under the wings of a U-2 can contain almost anything. I used to know what the weight limit was. Portions of the skins can be replaced with, e.g., camera ports.

    Seeing this picture at Theo's confused me, because I'd never seen the ELINT pod.
