The funniest thing about the U-2/TR-1 family, is that they're basically the F-104 starfighter fuselage with a different tail stabilizer and different wings.That wasn’t a U2, it was a TR1. Cosmetically they were identical but the TR1 was a tactical reconnaissance version.

Well you might have noticed that my "For aircraft enthusiasts" threads have been sparse this year, which is because of personal things happening and me not finding the time and inspiration to start a new one.
ANYWAY, let's turn the clock back to 1975, when Fender Telecasters looked like THIS.
Glen Campbell had a number one hit with this one.
And back then, the Royal Navy Flew the Phantom FG-1 (F-4K)
And the Blackburn Buccaneer.
From the HMS Ark Royal.
Now the reason why I bring this up as a question to everybody who served in the Navy, is that I found this amazing clip from carrier operations on the Ark Royal back in 1975.
And my question is, how similar or different is it from what you saw during your service?
How does it compare?
Electronic recon aircraft, very secret.
