“After flying 27 U-2 spyplane flights for the CIA, Francis Gary Powers was forced down from 67,000 feet over Yekaterinburg. It is thought he received a salvo of about 14 Soviet SA-2 missiles (Yikes!). Powers ejected after activating a melt-down system to destroy sensitive equipment. Having taken off from Peshawar, Pakistan, the end was to land at Bodo, Norway, an almost 3800 mile surveillance sweep. Powers underwent trial in Moscow, and spent five years in prison before being returned to the United States in 1965.”
