I forgot to add the card of conversions at about the 2:30 mark, and I don’t want to spend hours exporting another version, so here’s that paragraph with other measurements!
“The U-2 was 63 feet long (19.20 meters) with a wingspan of 103 feet (31.3944 meters), had an operational altitude of 70,000 feet (21,336 meters) with a 2,000-mile range (3,218.68 kilometers), and a top speed around Mach 0.8. The A-12, by design, had an altitude of about 90,000 feet (27,432 meters), a top speed of Mach 3.2, and a range of 4,120 miles total (6,630.49 kilometers) or 3,800nm range at altitude (4372.96 miles or 7,037.6 kilometers). It was, in short, a significant improvement.”
