    Re: A sextant in the Lockheed U2?

    Thanks to those answering so far.  We’re looking at pages 4-18, then 4-24 to 29 of the Pilot Manual for sextant operation.  I’m still looking for the celestial navigation technique.  After I said I doubted the feasibility of using celestial to navigate a U2, I remembered Chichester managed it in a Gipsy Moth, but then I remembered he was wearing street clothes, not a full pressure suit.  DaveP
