The Lockheed U-2 is a high altitude reconnaissance aircraft developed for the CIA under the codename Project Dragon Lady. The aircraft features a very light weight design and was powered by a single Pratt and Whitney J-57 turbojet engine and a huge wingspan to maintain extreme altitudes the U-2 would operate at.
In 2014, it was determined that the newest models in the U-2S fleet had used up only one fifth of their design life and this was one of the youngest fleets in the US Air Force. Lockheed has subsequently stated that the U-2 can remain viable until 2050, therefore, the story of the Dragon Lady is far from over.
