A US Air Force pilot assigned to the 99th Reconnaissance Squadron at Beale AFB, California, prepares to land his U-2 Dragon Lady high altitude reconnaissance aircraft at JB Andrews, Maryland, on 17 September 2015. On 19 September, the aircraft was flown over the starting line at the 19th Annual Air Force Marathon at Wright-Patterson AFB, Ohio, before returning to Andrews to go on static display during the base’s airshow. More than 18,000 people saw the aircraft at Wright-Patterson and some estimates put the crowd at Andrews at more than 60,000.
