This is a set of U-2 departure pictures.I was contacted by the pilot and swapped the pics for squadron t-shirts/badges. The picture in front of the fire station also appeared in Radiouser magazine.

Wow! What neat shots, and superbly taken! Not sure I would want to be strapped in that thing.....but have little worry they will ever call on me to give it a try!
Thanks for the shots, greatly enjoyed!

Regards!

But Rupert, it was a platform from which to get pictures!

Not my kind of flying - and I always need to sit in the 'go or the ride' seats.
