The Lockheed U-2 first flew in 1955 with the last being delivered in 1989 for a total of 32. NASA has two U-2s that were converted for scientific purposes to perform a variety of high-altitude missions around the world. The first ER-2 #806 was acquired by NASA in 1981 and a second aircraft #809 in 1989 and are now located at the Dryden Flight Research Center. At one point there were 3 ER-2s but one was returned to the USAF.

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.
