This is the first time I have seen a photo of the plane that I was a Design Engineer and Project Manager for the "green house" modification at Boeing to install a Secret IR tracking system in 1960. No pictures could be taken of this plane while it was classified. I flew in many, many 16 hour test missions from Dayton WPAFB to Cape Canaveral to track missle launches there. The project was cancelled about a year after Powers was shot down in the U2 over the USSR May 1, 1960. The plane was paired with an identical configuration installed in KC135 55-3134.
