A U-2 Dragon Lady intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance aircraft sits partially dismantled for Cockpit Altitude Reduction Effort modifications in a phase dock at Beale Air Force Base, Calif., Feb. 14, 2013. The upgrades will almost double the cabin pressure from 3.88 to 7.65 pounds per square inch, improving pilot safety and comfort. (U.S. Air Force photo by Senior Airman Shawn Nickel/Released)
