U2 Spy Plane

U2 Spy Plane

During the height of the Cuban Missile Crisis, a second U2 Spy Plane had strayed into Soviet Airspace. When radioing for directions, an unknown voice told the pilot to turn right 35 degrees which would have taken the plane deeper into the Soviet Union. When asked for an identifying code, there was no response.
