Before there was the SR-71 Blackbird…all the way back to 1957, the U-2 “Dragon Lady” has been spying and watching over the bad-guys. She’s even played a part in modern-day conflicts such as Iraq and Afghanistan. This video takes us from the ground to 70-thousand feet and back for the plane’s unique landing.
Original DoD released footage is about 20 minutes long…so, I cropped it down to this 6-minute video.
