80-1069 (cn 069) A rare look at the Lockheed Martin U-2S Dragon Lady. This one, 069 was based with the 9th Reconnaissance Wing at Beale Air Force Base, California. The U-2 is an amazing aircraft considering when it was designed and the fact it is still a valuable asset today. A real treat to watch takeoff and land also!
