While birdwatching recently with my Nephew in a wetlands area in the Wimmera region of Victoria, Australia we spotted a White Necked Heron flying overhead. I couldn’t help but notice a similarity to a bird of a different feather……

White Necked Heron Lockheed U-2 Dragonlady
Was the wide wingspan of the Dragonlady inspired by a Heron perhaps?

I took the photo of the USAF Lockheed U-2 Dragonlady reconnaissance aircraft high above at the 2012 California Capital Air Show in Sacramento. Although not the best photo I took of the Dragonlady on the day, it is an ideal example for comparison with the Heron.
