American spy aircraft spotted over Colombia amid backing Venezuela’ Guaido

An American spy aircraft has been spotted over Colombia for the second time in the two consecutive days as reported by Aircraft Spots, the aircraft was an EO-5C N177RA PLOMO27 spy plane.

The United States has been backing the self-proclaimed interim president of Venezuela Juan Guaido by urging the elected legitimate President Nicolas Maduro to resign in favour of Guaido, the opposition leader.

In a Twitter post, Aircraft Spots wrote along with attaching an image:

Steve Herman, a journalist, retweeted the post and photo assuming that the American military aircraft have been likely intercepted communications from its neighbor Venezuela that has plunged into political crisis, being fueled by the US.

According to Sputnik news reports, the FM, a Colombian radio station reported on Wednesday that a number of aircraft, including one Boeing 737 and one C17A military transport aircraft Globemaster, has landed at Air Command Military Transport (Catam) airport, on the outskirts of Bogota.

According to reports, the planes have reportedly landed at around 3:00 pm in Delaware from the Dover air base before leaving four hours later.

The development has come shortly after the US national security adviser John Bolton was photographed with holding a yellow notepad having words “5,000 troops to Colombia”, which went viral. The note has been spotted during a press briefing over new sanctions imposed against Venezuela.

While there were speculations that Washington might plan to deploy its American troops to Venezuela, the acting secretary of defence Patrick M. Shanahan has told the reporters that he had not yet discussed the plan with Bolton and further refused to offer any details.
