FIRST AERO & NASA U-2 “Dragon Lady” View From 70,000′

A short peek at some Dragon Lady uses in the modern day.  This 60 some odd year service ship is still actively serving our nation’s needs.  Most of its activities both here and abroad continue to emanate from the First Aero Squadron’s base North of Sacramento, California, at Beale AFB.  This clip is short (only 5:35 long), but reveals the unique bird’s fascinating work far above the earth.  See if you learn a few things you may not have known about our inveterate “Lady.”
