A friend of mine is a U-2 "Dragon Lady" pilot in the Air Force.
Awhile back he sent me the following pics he took while piloting
his aircraft. A little more about him:

Long story short, I've been flying in the Air Force for the last 6 years. I have about 2,000 hrs, having flown the T-37, T-1, T-38, C-5 (once), U-2, and TU-2 (2 seater). I'm currently dual qualified to fly the T-38 and U-2.

I flew the U-2 operationally this spring in South Korea during the time North Korea launched its Taepodong 2 missile over Japan.
He also passed along a .wav audio file of radio traffic of another U-2 pilot (not my buddy) with this description:

Here's an audio clip from one of my coworkers trying to work his way to Ramstein (Germany) from Sigonella (Sicily).
From the file description his friend was in "Dragon 20" on 25711.1.

First the pics:

And a Link to the audio file in .WAV format:

I also have a "History of U-2" Powerpoint file he sent me that I will try to get uploaded later today.

Enjoy!
Happy Monitoring!

Even though the audio is one sided (pilot only), that is friggin awesome, thank you for sharing!
"Dragon Two Zero, I've been in a spacesuit for seven hours, by myself, I WILL declare an emergency to get back if I have to!" Man -o- man.
