Only one U-2 on RAF strength, based at Watton (I think) for weather research and only for a brief period.

Not sure who we were trying to kid with these implausible misdirections but high-alt recce was a serious thing for the RAF for many years, so the participation would have been of no surprise to anyone, even back then.
