U-2 Photographs the Devastated Area

A U-2 surveillance aircraft was dispatched from Beale AFB in California to survey the devastation. "The Optical Bar Camera, or film-based imagery equipment used, is ideal for photographing very large areas with high resolution. In a six-hour mission, a U-2 employing the OBC can collect imagery over 90,000 square nautical miles." (Black Anthem military news)

I don't know if I want to see the photos.
