Registered to Boeing Military Co or Northrop Grumman. The aircraft was intended for the Joint-STARS program but for whatever reason this did not proceed. *The FAA Register shows "Last action taken" on this date. Sister aircraft HL7432 msn 19626 (formerly VH-EAF) was registered N770JS on 19JAN86 so 09JAN86 probably represents the date of registration for N780JS.

Some sources state that this aircraft was scrapped by Northrop Grumman at Melbourne, Florida as N780JS. Photographic evidence that the aircraft is still in Libya as 5A-DTF suggests that the aircraft was not accepted for the Joint-STARS program but instead became TF-IUD and 5A-DTF as per the amended sequence shown above. Thanks to Jim Tomlinson for pointing out the anomaly.
