USAF U-2R "Dragon Lady" 1/144 Model
Despite its advancing age, the Lockheed U-2 "Dragon Lady" - which, first flown in 1955, was built in response to President Dwight Eisenhower's request for advanced intelligence gathering on the Soviet Union - continues to fly high-altitude, all-weather reconnaissance missions for the U.S. Air Force even today.
