What squadron will fly the RCAFs new King Air BE350 ISR+ aircraft?
8 Wing has them listed as an operational aircraft, but no squadron has claimed them.
I'm going to assume 427 Squadron?

If so, that's interesting that are now flying helo's and planes.

Will they be configured similarly to the USAF MC-12Ws or will we see a uniquely Canadian config?

My strong suspicion is that those in the CAF with a need to know these issues already know.

And, when whatever information is determined to be releasable to the public is identified, it will be released.

Until then, those who know will not talk, and those who talk will not know.

The BE350s referenced on the 8 Wing page belong to the Multi Engine Utility Flight.

These are unrelated to the MAISR project / procurement.

Plenty of RCAF units fly RW and FW under the same banner.  If 427 absorbs the Beechcraft, it won’t be ground breaking.

So which is the next null-strength squadron to be brought back to duty again?  If the new aircraft are to be kept separate from 427 due to the difference of platforms, they need a new squadron.
