    Spyplanes is the comprehensive history of manned spyplanes, beginning with those Italian airplanes puttering above the North African desert and continuing through every major world conflict to culminate with jets cruising at supersonic speeds 85, feet above the Earth's surface. It is a fuzzy line due to our atmosphere bending sunlight. It is also referred to as the grey line and the twilight zone. A second U-2 pilot normally chases each landing in a high-performance chase car, assisting the pilot by providing radio inputs for altitude and runway alignment. Less than a decade after the Wright Brothers flew at Kitty Hawk, Italian pilots were keeping tabs on Turkish A comprehensive history with descriptions of the world's most significant aircraft employed as "eyes in the sky. The low-altitude handling chareristics of the aircraft and bicycle-type landing gear require precise control inputs during landing; forward visibility is also limited due to the extended aircraft nose and taildragger configuration.

    These chareristics combine to earn the U-2 a widely accepted title as the most difficult aircraft in the world to fly. Today, the U-2S flies in support of a variety of missions from ground combat to disaster relief. Included are purpose-built spyplanes, as well as legendary fighters and bombers that have been retrofitted for the purpose over the years. This ah ha moment is a beautiful reminder of how small we are when skimming the edge of space.

    It is also referred to as the grey line and the twilight zone. It is a fuzzy line due to our atmosphere bending sunlight. This aircraft was originally designed to fly high-altitude intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance missions during the Cold War to gather intelligence on enemies. In addition, the authors feature preliminary chapters discussing the history of aerial surveillance and a host of sidebars that explore considerations such as spyplanes in military doctrine, events such as the Cuban missile crisis, the downing of Francis Gary Powers' U-2, the Open Skies Treaty, and the USAF's current Big Safari program. Today, aircraft with specialized designs and sensory equipment still cruise the skies over foreign lands and seas, trying to spy out secrets.
