You can also see them on theComp Air Jet.
You can, can't you! And there's a good reason for that - this is of course the Aerocomp Comp Air Jet

By the way Ken, silhouettes are looking good. How are you managing to delete the background? (assuming they're photos).

Yes a U-2 TR-1 with a fungiform protrusion.

"American U-2 Dragon Lady spyplane"

Well, the caption says U-2, which gives it to Graeme anyhow. I am not capable of arguing. But it is USAF, not NASA.

Over to you.

In fact on checking the satellite pod was fitted to both the U-2S and the ER-2.

Open House

Edit, sorry Graeme, you were there first with the TR-1....I missed your post completely.

Can't wait up Martin

I missed your post completely.

IF
I'm right, I'll leave you with this. If I'm wrong, just ignore this post, like my last one.

(This is on the internet. If/when you find it, you know what to do...goodnight! )
