    ...
    The U-2 plane was a spy plane that Eisenhower had made to spy on the interior parts of Russia. The CIA was put on the job and quickly talked to Lockheed Martin and had them develop the CL-282. Designed to fly around 70,000 feet, it was out of enemy fire range. The goal for the U-2 plane was to get photos and spy on Russia for any threatening activity from them. This design for a plane was originally rejected from the Air Force because of lack of maneuverability and armament. For whatever reason, when Gary Powers was on a spy mission over Russia, he was shot down and captured and spent 1 year 9 months and 9 days in prison before the US "traded" him for a Soviet spy who was caught in the United States. How he was shot down will likely never be known, some say that he actually landed, although improbable, in Russia. The main belief that people believe that he was shot down is because for whatever reason he was not flying at 70,000 feet like he should have been to avoid enemy fire.
