A U-2 Dragon Lady, 380th Air Expeditionary Wing, Al Dhafra Air Base, United Arab Emirates, takes off from Bagram Airfield, Afghanistan, June 22, 2018.  Mobile chase car drivers act as a second pair of eyes and ears for U-2 pilots during their launch and landings, making up for the pilot’s limited movement and vision.  Once an aircraft nears the runway, chase cars speed off in pursuit close behind it, radioing adjustments to pilot until they are inches from the ground. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt.
