  • U2 Crisis
  • Mr. President, sir, we need your authorization for operation GRAND SLAM.
  • You have it, just make sure our pilot gets home safe. 
  • Crossing over the border of Kazach into USSR, Over. 
  • By:  Ida McLauglin and Meghan Santora
  • President Eisenhower approves the U2 plane to fly over Soviet Union. Operation GRAND SLAM was a go.
  • Alright, alright, it was a spy plane ok, please don't hurt me!
  • I knew the Americans were spying on us, now I can call them out in it and make them look like fools!
  • Operation Grand Slam was scheduled to take place 15 days before the opening of the east-west summit conference in Paris. 
  • We should instate an open skies policy so that we can both guard against nuclear threats
  • We don't have any bases close to you, this would be more beneficial for you than it would be for me. 
  • The U2 was shot down and the pilot, Gary Powers, was captured by the Soviets just outside of Chelyabinsk.
  • The Soviets plan was to develop a political trap for Eisenhower, the plan was to allow the Americans to continue to call the plane a weather plane then reveal that the pilot was still alive and had confessed to the true purpose of the plane.
  • After the US was exposed for the U2 plane, US calls meeting with the Soviets to discuss a possible open skies agreement. However, as was normal between the two nations, if one decided a agreement would be beneficial to the other the plan was immediately denied.
