Lockheed U-2G N808X Featured Print

Lockheed U-2G N808X

Central Intelligence Agency - Lockheed U-2G N808X. One of several U-2s procured by the CIA, for operations from aircraft carriers, fitted with lift-dumping spoilers, stronger undercarriages and arrestor hooks. On 29 February 1964, Bob Schumacher alighted on the USS Ranger in U-2G N808X, to make the type???s first trapped landing. It nearly ended in disaster when the aircraft bounced just as the hook caught the wire; the aircraft pitched forward and the nose hit the deck. This aircraft is known to have operated from CVA-61 USS Ranger for tests 2-5 March 1964, (U-2G 'N801X' and 'N808X', with 'O.N.R.' titles), and operationally in May 1964 for 'Operation Seeker' (and maybe again in 1965/66). Date: circa 1960
