PATRICIA LYNN: Taking Away the Night

PATRICIA LYNN was a highly-classified reconnaissance program using specially-modified RB-57Es. The sophisticated equipment in these aircraft revealed enemy positions and transportation even on the darkest of nights. They also carried optical cameras for day missions.

Though there were only six PATRICIA LYNN RB-57Es -- and two of these were shot down--their effectiveness far outweighed their numbers. Flying under the radio call sign Moonglow, RB-57Es remained in heavy use until the PATRICIA LYNN program ended in 1971.
