These incredible photos show a DRAGON86 arriving at RAF Fairford.

The U-2 reconnaissance aircraft, which has the registration number 80-1066, arrived at the US Air Force base on Sunday.

Fairford has been a hive of activity in recent weeks, with KC-135 Stratotankers from RAF Mildenhall taking part in a training exercise there last month.
