    ANOTHER U2 Squadron Watch!!

    Nemo from Bremont Military division just posted the first images of yet another squadron watch for U2 pilots. If you're a U2 pilot and misses out on the original squadron U2, or the second stealthy ALT1-Z based U2 Chronograph, then now is your chance to claim one of 60 "Dragon Lady" watches based off of the ALT1-C! Its the first Bremont I've seen with the logo moved to the bottom half of the dial, but it also sports the blue Leander/EE hands with patina numerals from the P-51 and B-52. Also, check out that awesome rotor! I believe it would be a contender in our Rotor Roundup poll! It's a very attractive piece in my opinion, but three different U2 squadron watches? Too much?

    Jeremy I think this is a great looking watch, love the Leander blue accent and patina numerals. Those U2 jockeys must love their Bremont watches but it's sadly no good for someone who flies a Piper Navajo!! :-(

    Mythbusters just aired an episode about the U-2 that includes some really cool high altitude shots.

    And now for a movie based on Gary Powers' unfortunate predicament back in 1960. Should be interesting although U-2 footage won't be historically accurate.

    Which begs the question: Which is the oldest aircraft type still in operational service with the US Air Force?

    I'd have to go for the BUFF, but the U2 could well be a close second?

    Out T-38s are actually older than our U-2s. We fly the S model which was built in the 80s. There is footage in the movie that was filmed at Beale hence the historical inaccuracy. I think oldest aircraft in the USAF inventory is either the B-52 or the KC-135.
