A large cabin, good performance, low airframe and operating costs and wide choice of sensors make the Beechcraft King Air family popular for special mission applications. This aircraft is one of five Shadow R1s serving with the RAF.
Like many of the special missions Beech 350 variants, little information has been released on the RAF's Shadow R1s. The long term future of the fleet is uncertain, as they were acquired to support operations in Afghanistan and funding cutbacks after the UK pulls out in 2014 may see them withdrawn.
Although no orders have been announced for the Spyder, L3 has promoted the system in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. The system was designed to be platform independent and can be tailored to the requirements of the customer.
Several companies have offered special mission variants of the Beech 350, all of which take advantage of under fuselage panniers to accommodate mission sensors.
Initially assigned to No.5(AC) Squadron, the RAF's Shadow R1s currently serve with No.14 Squadron.
C-12D 81-23545 was one of the aircraft modified to the Horned Owl configuration.

The EMB-145H has a reinforced top fuselage to carry the PS-890 Erieye radar antenna, winglets to improve aerodynamics, fuel economy and range and an increased fuel capacity compared to the commercial ERJ-145 variant.
The EMB-145H cockpit is equipped with two Honeywell flight management systems, two 8 x 7 inch multi-functional displays, and two primary flight displays. A solitary engine instrument crew alerting system is positioned in the centre of the panel.
