Pilots view from a U2 Spy Plane- with a range of 3,000 miles and the ability to achieve an altitude of a whopping 70,000 feet and more. The 67 year old (numerous upgrades since) is still at the top of its game, flying missions in an environment no other aircraft can operate in. The pilot is more astronaut than aviator in the cocoon-like partially pressurized cockpit of the U-2 wrapped in a bulky pressure suit with a large spherical helmet. The pilots breathe 100% oxygen for an hour before the flight to help purge nitrogen from their bodies.
