A rare NASA swept-wing variant of the U-2 on display at the Moffett Field Historical Society Museum.  Ignoring the distortion of the fisheye lens, this is actually a U-2C model that NASA operated from 1971 until its retirement in 1987.  Originally delivered as a U-2A in 1956, the NASA U-2’s were the last of the original production run to remain on flight status. NASA still flies two ER-2 (Earth Resources-2) versions of the U-2, with their larger wings and higher payload.  Fuji X-E2s w/8mm fisheye.
