After 18 Years, JSTARS Surveillance Plane Is Coming Home

The JSTARS watch in the Middle East has ended.

After 18 years of deployments, the E-8C Joint Surveillance Target Attack Radar System (JSTARS) left the U.S. Central Command area of responsibility last month, marking the aircraft's final mission to the region, according to a recent news release.

"Looking out the window of the flight deck and seeing Al Udeid [Air Base, Qatar] drifting into the distance for the last time after so many years was a momentous occasion," said Col. Konata Crumbly, 116th Air Control Wing commander and JSTARS aircraft commander.

"It is difficult to measure the kind of success our Team JSTARS airmen and soldiers achieved over the last 18 years; it can only be measured in lives not lost," he added.
