CARE modifications place pilots at better elevation

Greg Lonnie, Lockheed Martin aircraft structure mechanic, cuts aluminum to replace a skin piece from under the cockpit of a U-2 intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance aircraft, at Beale Air Force Base, Calif., Feb. 14, 2013. Liquid from the urine collection device used during long high flights can leak and corrode the plane from the inside out. These parts have to be retrofitted from scratch to match the original specifications during Cockpit Altitude Reduction Effort modifications.
