Events
March 11 - Francis Gary Powers, Jr. 
Remember the U-2 Incident of 1960? A CIA spy plane piloted by Francis Gary Powers was shot down in Russia territory. The 'Incident' created enormous tensions between the U.S. and USSR, which later led to Powers being exchanged for a Soviet spy, Rudolph Abel, held in the US. Well, his son, Gary Jr., will tell us details behind the U-2 Incident and his book Controversial Cold War Legacy. Gary also founded The Cold War Museum to honor Cold War veterans. Facts and tales of mystery about the U-2 Incident still abound. Zoom with us and let Gary Jr. give you insight to what really happened.
