Since X-37B OTV 2-1 has been in the news lately, I have produced this comparison of its altitude history with that of
its sister spacecraft, relative mission elapsed time.

The data is derived exclusively from hobbyist observations.

The USAF has announced that OTV 2-1 will remain in orbit past its nominal 270 day mission duration:
