South Korea Spying on North Korea
In this photo taken Feb. 16, 2012, a U.S. Air Force U-2 spy plane pilot Major Colby drives a chase car to guide a U-2 spy plane attempting to land during a training flight at the U.S. airbase in Osan, south of Seoul, South Korea. U-2 pilots in chase cars _ at Osan they are white Pontiac G8s _ race down the runway at speeds of more than 120 miles per hour (200 kph) to meet each landing. They guide the pilot down, radioing in the plane's altitude as it comes to a full stall with about two feet (less than a meter) to go and essentially drops down to the ground. (AP Photo/Lee Jin-man)
