An Airman prepares a pilot for flight.


181212-F-FM571-008

A Lockheed U-2 pilot, assigned to the 9th Reconnaissance Wing at Beale Air Force Base, Calif., prepares for takeoff with the help of his maintainers and fellow U-2 pilots at Nellis Air Force Base, Nev. The U-2 pilot must wear a full pressure suit similar to those worn by astronauts due to the high altitudes they’re able to reach in their aircraft.
