Not-so-secret spy plane makes flight over Fresno County, California

Kathryn's Report: http://www.kathrynsreport.com 

A U-2 airplane, formerly the apex of American military spy planes, makes a low-level flyover above Clovis Avenue and Fresno Yosemite International Airport at about noon Thursday. Pilot and amateur photographer Dean Kasparian of Fresno snapped a photo of the aircraft as he was driving on McKinley Avenue near Clovis Avenue, at the southeast corner of the airport. 



A U-2 airplane – a version of the secret spy plane made not-so-secret when one was shot down over the Soviet Union in 1960 – made a low-level flyover at Fresno Yosemite International Airport at about noon on Thursday.

Amateur photographer and pilot Dean Kasparian of Fresno snapped a couple of photos of the sleek aircraft as it approached the intersection of McKinley and Clovis avenues near the airport. The Air National Guard’s 144th Fighter Wing at Fresno Yosemite International confirmed that the airplane is a military U-2, and is not associated with the Fresno unit. But the wing was unable to confirm where the plane is based.

No other information on the plane was available.
