U2s 16-6-21

Post by Tiger 1 » Wed Jun 16, 2021 8:39 am

U2.... 083 is outside no pod and the second U2 is inside the
first hangar with pod fitted.

Any of you guys help with the serial of the other U2.

No sign of 083 getting airborne as yet.

The days of them flying almost every week day are over for now it seems. This might be one of those periods with no flying for a few days when aircraft get repaired, pilots swap out, and commanders change etc.

Might it not be connected to the Geneva talks between Biden and Mr Putin? Bit embarrassing to be shown data of one of your own intelligence assets, snooping on the territory of the person you're telling to keep their nose out of your country's affairs. :Oops:
