Overview

The “Cold War” was an extended period of East-West tension. Airborne and spaceborne reconnaissance played a key role in keeping both sides informed about what the other was doing, and cool heads prevailed in preventing Nuclear Armageddon. This Day School will look at the development of “Spy Satellites” and the role played by iconic aircraft such as the U-2 and SR-71.
