The U-2 "spy plane" is still at it, but now the object of its curiosity is Mother Nature. The pictures taken from the U-2, usually flying at 65,000 feet, are helpful in combatting air and water pollution, fires, floods, forest or crop insect infestations and soil erosion. The two U-2's stationed here have flown 450 missions and gathered 150,000 photos since the program started in late 1971.
