The Lockheed U-2 , nicknamed " Dragon Lady ", is an American single- jet engine , ultra-high altitude reconnaissance aircraft operated by the United States Air Force (USAF) and previously flown by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). It provides day and night, high-altitude (70,000 feet; 21,000 m), all-weather intelligence gathering . [1]

Alarmed over rapid developments in military technology by his Communist rivals in the USSR, President Dwight D. Eisenhower , who served in office from 1953 to 1961, approved a plan to gather information about Soviet capabilities and intentions. High-altitude U-2 spy planes began making reconnaissance flights over the USSR in 1956, giving the U.S. its first detailed look at Soviet military facilities.
