A U-2 spy plane out of Beale Air Force Base was seen doing a handful of landing drills in Chico Monday morning.

Most in the North State are already aware that Beale Air Force Base is known for being home to the U-2 and the Global Hawk, but any sighting of the spy plane elicits excitement around town.

The U-2 is an ultra-high altitude plane with sensors used for gathering images for intelligence purposes.
