The C.I.A. and the U-2 Program, 1954-1974 is the formerly Top Secret C.I.A. internal history of the development of the U-2. It describes: the development of the U-2 which was half jet-half glider; why half of all UFO sightings during the text years of the U-2 were actually U-2 sightings; U-2 flights over Russia (the Francis Gary Powers shoot-down in May, 1960), flights over the Soviet Vloc, the Middle East, Asia, North Vietnam and Latin America and the geopolitical significance of high-flight spy planes. This is the first commercial publication of these formerly Top Secret files.
