Spy Plane Flight Manual Released - Fly Your Own U2

Always Wanted To Fly A U-2 Spyplane? Here's The Manual

Recently released by the CIA is the flight manual for the U-2 spy plane used by the CIA for high altitude flights, most notably over the Soviet Union and once shot down during an overflight by Francis Gary Powers.

A very light glider-like aircraft with an 80 foot wingspan, designed to fly well above 70,000 feet, the aircraft was a government secret as to it's capabilities and mission until the Power's U-2 was shot down by the Soviets.
