Cozy Kline and his wife Jan were stationed at Laughlin AFB, TX and they both designed the 4028th SRS patch in 1957 which replica watches had a dragon intertwined around an astro-globe instrument. He chose the Dragon because that was the unclassified name used by Strategic Air Command for the formation of the first military squadron to fly the U-2.
There was film made; "Toward the Unknown" about flying faster than the speed of replica watches uk sound and Cozy thought this was a great saying for the Squadron Patch as they were really were flying into unknown territory.
