    Hi everyone,
    In some videoclips I saw that, in some kind of aircraft (e.g. some types of Boeing 737) there is a strange object attached behind the rudder. It seems like a little sphere attached by a thin stick. Is it an antenna or what?

    Thanks.
    It's called a trailing cone and is used to calibrate the pitot static system.

    Trial for a Magnetic Anomaly Detector (MAD)? Althought from memory the P8's won't have one fitted.
