I love that you can see the Pontiac G8 with its big V8 tearing around the corner to chase the U-2 down!

The GTO speeding in the background provides external eyes for the pilot to help him land the tricky plane.

Nice photo! Notice the chase car who aids the pilot in landing via radio.

Man they have a Pontiac G8 as the chase car? The USAF has too much fun...

FYI........the guy in the Pontiac is the other
pilot! It takes two to get this thing in the air, and two to get it back on the ground; you are now looking at the most difficult plane ever built, to get back on the ground, and this guy is about to "give it a go"!
