A skin depicting the three U-2E aircraft deployed to Vietnam in early 1964 --
56-6680,56-6703, & 56-6707.
The U-2E differed from the Basic A model by modifying it for inflight refueling.
3 aircraft were converted, and 5 J75 powered U-2C models were converted to U-2Fs
by the same modification.
These U-2Es were with the 4028th Strategic Reconnaissance Squadron of the
4080th Strategic Reconnaissance Wing.
The 4028th SRS flew high-altitude reconnaissance missions, photographing SAM sites
near Hanoi and Haiphong harbor.
On February 11th 1966, the 4080th SRW was redesignated the 100th SRW and moved
to Davis-Monthan AFB, Arizona. The SRS detachment at Bien Hoa AB, South Vietnam,
was redesignated the 349th SRS.
