The U-2 made its first flight in 1955, and is still flying. I am Chris Pocock, and I have been following this remarkable aircraft for over 30 years. I have written four books* and many articles. The CIA’s own historian said that I am the foremost authority on the subject.

On this website, I post historical commentaries; describe my books; provide some basic facts; and more. I invite your comments, and your help to enable my continued research.

On another website, www.dragonladytoday.com, I provide the latest news on today’s U-2, which remains at the forefront of airborne reconnaissance, and seems likely to continue in service for many years to come!
