Creating a spy network to penetrate the Iron Curtain was surprisingly difficult. So, the United States decided to develop a plane, the Lockheed U-2, to fly high over the vast Soviet Union and take photographs. Known as Dragon Lady, this eye-in-the-sky cruised at altitudes of 70,000 feet. The U2 provided critical information that helped the U.S. keep the Cold War on ice and avoid an actual conflict with the Soviets.
