Journalist Andrew Potter based near the British air base at Akrotiri, Cyprus,
reported (via Twitter) that two U-2 spyplanes arrived there in the afternoon
of Aug. 29.
One U-2 had left RAF Fairford early in the morning and was plotted until
it entered the French airspace: although its final destination is unknown,
is safe to assume it went to Akrotiri.
Potter mentioned that the first U-2 to arrive made two attempts to land where
as the second had no issues.
