U-2 Dragonlady

Imagine how amazing it would be to have an aircraft that is actually built to fly above 50,000ft.

The U-2 is America’s longest serving surveillance plane.

if its a surveillance plane, i expect it too go very high!

Just found it is a duplicate. The original post was hidden undeer 15 posts about US and United Aircraft. I do apologize I searched but not that as extensively as I should have.

I watched a documentary on it one time and it said it can reach 70,00 feet. My person opinion is that it can probably fly close to 100,000 feet high

Just no. Nobody will operate it correctly. Also, there are only a few knots between stall and mach speed in the altitude this things operates. People wont know how to fly this.

This is a unique and ideal aircraft for infinite flight.

Infinite flight focuses a lot on high altitude flying and the U-2 would be ideal. Imagine being able to fly at the edge of space in infinite flight in complete peace?! A cool “camera” view can be added so we can use the U-2s onboard camera to take beautiful pics in global.

Furthermore it’s the most challenging plane in the US arsenal to land. That would make this plane awesome for those wanting a landing challenge. You have my vote!
