Fill 'er up at the fuel truck
Here we see a U-2 being refueled after a mission in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom, providing near-real-time imagery and signals intelligence. That aircraft was based, the Air Force said coyly, "at a forward deployed location in Southwest Asia."
The U-2 has a wingspan of 103 feet. It is 63 feet long, and stands over 16 feet tall at its tail.
