U-2E 4028th SRS - Vietnam

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.


Credit goes to the guest who developed the U-2A.
