The USAF deployed the U-2 Dragon Lady from the 9 RW at Beale AFB and Fairford Air Base in Gloucestershire, England to provide intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance. U-2 80-1074 was built in 1984 as TR-1A and underwent the PLSS program and transferred to the 17th RW in 1990. In 1992 it was sent to the 9th RW and in 1996 was reconfigured as a U-2S. This U-2 had taken part in “Operation Desert Storm”.

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.
