Beale Bandit by F16CrewChief Beale Bandit by F16CrewChief
U-2R 80-1080 assigned to the 99 RS, 9 RW, Beale AFB taxiing out for takeoff at Luke AFB.

The acft was originally designated as a TR-1A, but in 1992 all TR-1's were re-designated as U-2R acft, since they really were the same.

Now all in-service U-2R's have recieved a digital "glass" cockpit and a powerplant upgrade and are now U-2S acft.

This was a really sharp looking slide, it lost a lot of quality in my scanner, but I hope you all like it!

Well, not exactly. My family was based there when I was born and my dad worked down at the flight line for awhile and then moved to a different area. We moved to Georgia in 2009. He now works at Robins AFB.

Well not really. The CIA gave up control on the U-2 assets in 1974. They have been an Air Force program since then.
