This video is a once in a lifetime experience of Top Gear host James May getting a flight at over 70,000 ft. in a U-2 spy plane. Please note at the take-off the assist wheels on the outer edges of the wings which drop off upon take-off. The wings are so long that they need temporary support until lift-off. What is not shown is at the landing the plane actually slows to a small enough speed that two guys are actually able to grab the wing tips and put those assist wheels back on.
I love the jet powered push out ogf the hangar... who got the job of cleaning the hangar after that???
