U-2: Khrushchev and Gary Powers Wreckage
Soviet leader Nakita Khrushchev and the recovered wreckage from the shootdown of the U-2 piloted by Francis Gary Powers.

On 1 May 1960, U-2 pilot Francis Gary Powers was shot down by the Soviets over Sverdlovsk. He was tried in August 1960, in a three-day open trial in Moscow and was sentenced to 10 years by the USSR Supreme Court's Military Cases Collegium. He spent 21 months in prison and was then exchanged in February 1962, for Soviet intelligence officer Rudolph Abel, who had been arrested in New York in 1957.
