In the Cockpit With a U2 Spy Plane at 70,000 Feet

posted by Mike Steele -

You don't often get to see a spy plane and its pilot at work.

You'll see that the pilot of the U2 plane, nicknamed "Dragon Lady", is wearing an astronaut's helmet...because he's flying at twice the altitude of a passenger plane. And notice the rearview mirror on the left of the cockpit. Is he expecting traffic to pass him?

Watch as he takes off, climbs to 70,000 Feet and then decends back to earth.
