Trivia

Just before the U-2 plane takes off in Bridge of Spies (2015), its auxiliary landing gear can be seen falling off the right wing. The U-2 was designed to be as light as possible to give it maximum range and altitude capability. So its auxiliary landing gear, or "pogos", were designed to fall away from its wings on takeoff to minimize weight. The plane lands with its nose and tail gear in an inline "bicycle" configuration, and its wingtips are equipped with titanium skid plates to prevent damage. See more »
