U.S. Using ‘Cold War Spy Plane’ Against ISIS

The Daily Beast reports that “the U.S. Air Force has quietly offered a rare glimpse of one of the more secretive warplanes involved in the war on ISIS.”

“On Aug. 6, Air Forces Central Command—the flying branch’s headquarters overseeing operations in the Middle East—released a video of a black-painted U-2 spy plane taking off and landing at what the command described as an ‘undisclosed location’ on July 14.”

“The iconic spy plane’s mission, according to command, was to ‘support of Operation Inherent Resolve,’ America’s campaign against ISIS militants in Iraq and Syria.”
