U-2 Dragon Lady Takeoffs & Landings at Beale AFB

4 déc. 2014 Lockheed Martin


With its glider-like wing, the Lockheed Martin U-2 Dragon Lady wants to fly. Landings are essentially tightly choreographed controlled stalls. During landings, the U-2 is routinely chased on the runway by the backup U-2 pilot driving a high-performance vehicle, such as a Chevrolet Camaro. The chase pilot communicates the height above ground so the pilot in the U-2 knows when to set the aircraft down.
