Beale maintainers achieve "black-letter" status on Dragon Lady
Airmen from the 9th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron pose with a U-2 Dragon Lady at Beale Air Force Base, California, July 14, 2015. The Airmen were recognized for a “black-letter jet,” a rare accomplishment in which a plane is flown with zero discrepancies. The achievement has not happened in 13 years at Beale.
