CFP National Championship Game

#255658 by jsburger » Mon Jan 07, 2019 8:43 pm

Did anyone notice the fly over during the National Anthem? It was a U-2 "Dragon Lady". This has been one of the most secret reconnaissance aircraft other than the SR-71. It is still in service unlike the SR-71. They are flown out of Beale AFB CA by the 9th Reconnaissance Wing among other places around the world.

I have never seen one in an over fly. That was amazing.

I was on Beale AFB a few years ago and they had U-2's and drones.

I did see that but could not identify what type plane it was since the shot was so quick. I would not have dreamed it was a U-2. Usually fighters are the rule. I wonder what prompted this other than Beale being close by. Thanks for bringing this to our attention.

Yes it was a quick shot. I didn't know at first because that was the last thing one would expect to see. As you said usually fighters or sometimes a B-2. I have DirecTV so I was able to rewind and get another look.
