U-2 Dragonlady info

Recommended Posts

Noticed an interesting line in the U-2 robot email this morning: "New opportunities are emerging for U-2 pilot selects to PCS directly to overseas assignments after initial qualification training at Beale AFB." Any publicly-releasable details on that? I'm not in a position to apply right now, just curious.

To the world's best squadron. Tied only with the other U-2 locations. Ask some of your KC-10 bros if they'd ever go back.

Didn’t say Korea was bad. It was just a free trip there. Or maybe Cyprus. Or that other sunny place.

I’ve been to all three and none of them are really bad.

So 2023 we'll see another U-2 extension letter I assume.

You are wise beyond your years.

Well, sh1t...we do seem to have lost the touch about killing airplanes...

Are you suggesting that one of the Air Force's measures of effectiveness should be its ability to successfully retire the U-2?

No.

USAF is supposed to provide air superiority, i.e., destroy enemy airplanes.

We can't even kill (off) our own. Therefore, can we still do that mission?

An attempt at ironic humor...
