*********** May Day 1960 - U2 Finally brought down by the Soviets after over 4 years of unsuccessful frustrating attempts. Francis Gary Powers on a delayed flight from Pakistan to Norway bails out over Sverdlosk (now Ekatrinburg) and is captured thus allowing Nikita Khruschev the excuse to reignite the Cold War after a brief 7 month thaw.

****** Part of our History .
