One of the most talked-about events of the Cold War was the downing of the American U-2 spy plane piloted by Francis Gary Powers over the Soviet Union on May 1, 1960. The event was depicted in the Steven Spielberg movie Bridge of Spies, showing how Powers was captured by the KGB, subjected to a televised show trial, and imprisoned, all of which created an international incident.
