Alone with The Forms

A U-2 pilot in the PSD transport van pre-breaths oxygen and awaits the walk to his jet for the imminent sortie. Around him a flurry of professional support at every level of flight preparation tightens into a finely straightened line of settled purpose. Now alone, he reviews the final forms for his solitary ten hour mission flight at the edge of the stratosphere.  

~  This painting was inspired by Kristin’s high altitude U-2 flight experience. From within the protection of her own pressure suit while awaiting the walk to the U-2 for the flight, Kristin observed her pilot “checking the forms” that were presented to him. The intensity of the moment was shared with thousands of U-2 sorties and decades of history.
