Welcome back for another edition of Meddatron’s Eye for details Spotlight. This time around I am turning my eye onto Fighting 118th member Fritzkrieg and his SR-71/U-2 Pilot.
The Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird is an advanced, long range, strategic reconnaissance aircraft capable of traveling at Mach 3+. When shot at from the ground, this bad boy is capable of out flying said missile. This craft was retired in 1998.
The Lockhead U-2, nicknamed, Dragon Lady, is also a reconnaissance aircraft designed and used for the Cold War with the Soviet Union. It has participated in all the recent conflicts the US has been involved in. It can travel as high as 70,000 feet in all weather conditions. Perfect for spying, which it has been doing for over 50 years.
