Zanimljiv materijal koji je do nedavno bio označen kao poverljiv i nedostupan javnosti - ovo je studija aktivnosti špijunskih aviona U2 i špijunskih satelita CORONA iznad bliskog istoka tokom 50-tih i 60-tih godina.
Naime, ovde se radi o snimcima koji spadaju pod arheološka istraživanja i skeniranja teritorije koja su se naravno koristile za vojne svrhe.

Citat:Near Eastern Landscapes and Declassified U2 Aerial Imagery

Recently declassified photographs taken by U2 spy planes in the 1950s and 1960s provide an important new source of historical aerial imagery useful for Eurasian archaeology. Like other sources of historical imagery, U2 photos provide a window into the past, before modern agriculture and development destroyed many archaeological sites. U2 imagery is older and in many cases higher resolution than CORONA spy satellite imagery, the other major source of historical imagery for Eurasia, and thus can expand the range of archaeological sites and features that can be studied from an aerial perspective. However, there are significant barriers to finding and retrieving U2 imagery of
particular locales, and archaeologists have thus not yet widely used it. In this article, we aim to reduce these barriers by describing the U2 photo dataset and how to access it. We also provide the first spatial index of U2 photos for the Middle East. A brief discussion of archaeological case studies drawn from U2 imagery illustrates its merits and limitations. These case studies include investigations of prehistoric mass-kill hunting traps in eastern Jordan, irrigation systems of the first millennium BC Neo-Assyrian Empire in northern Iraq, and twentiethcentury marsh communities in southern Iraq.

Budget Elicits Confusion Over Fate of U-2
Citat:The Air Force says it will not divest its fleet of U-2 Dragon Lady planes in fiscal 2025, despite language to the contrary in the service’s 2021 budget request.
Air Force Magazine first reported that the budget submission, unveiled Feb. 10, planned to start retiring the Cold War-era Dragon Ladies in five years. However, the Air Force also projected spending $77 million on developing updates for the fleet from 2021-2024, but zeroed out research and development spending in 2025.
