U-2 Longevity

Tags: airplanes

The U-2 aircraft, also known as the “Dragon Lady”, has remained in service despite the rise of satellites and UAVs. UAVs currently do not fly as high, and are more expensive. Satellites do not have the coverage window of a loitering U-2. Having first flown in 1955, it remains in service today, sixty five years later.
