First Important Note: The music is called "Flight" performed by Ty Unwin especially for this show. I'm sad to say that it is not currently available on its own. . Check out *******www.youtube****/watch?v=VfP8Mm_1fXw For clips from the training as well as some alternative scenes from the flight. - Surely the most amazing and humbling views to be seen by any human on a regular basis. The view from a U-2 cruising at 70,000ft as the sky above turns black and the curvature of the Earth is visible. Despite first flying over 50 years ago, the U-2 continues to serve in the USAF, having outlasted its Mach 3 replacement, the SR-71 (also from Lockheed). The only people to have gone gone higher on any sort of regular basis were SR-71 pilots. Astronautics have, of course, gone higher still, but certainly not on a regular basis. There is a special message at the end of the video that I hope can be taken to heart by all.
