U-2R No. 68-10337 was produced in 1968 and assigned to the 99th Strategic Reconnaissance Squadron, 9th Strategic Reconnaissance Wing, Beale AFB, California. In 1975 while operating with the 99th SRS in Thailand the aircraft crashed and was sent to Palmdale, CA to be rebuilt. In May 1982 68-10337 was transferred to Detachment 4, 9th SRW at RAF Mildenhall. In 1988 the aircraft was once again damaged and sent to Palmdale, CA for repairs. In mid 1990s 32 U-2Rs received General Electric engines and were re-designated U-2S.

In 1954 Lockheed was approved to build a high-altitude reconnaissance aircraft. The creation of this aircraft went to Lockheed’s Skunk Works and "Kelly" Johnson. The aircraft, a single engine jet that could provide images day or night over Soviet territory, was labeled U-2 (U=utility) and given the name “Dragon Lady”. The first test flight took place in 1955 and was used by the CIA and the USAF during the Cold War. The U-2 came to international notoriety in 1960 when one piloted by Francis Gary Powers was shot down over the Soviet Union.
