  • Don't worry about it, Mrs. Eisenhower.  This is just like any other mission.
  • U.S. Pilot  Francis Gary Powers is preparing to  go  on aerial spy mission over the USSR. 
  • Mr. Francis, make sure to fly safely. I just have a bad feeling about this trip.
  • U.S. Pilot  Francis Gary Powers is preparing to  go  on aerial spy mission over the USSR. 
  • The plane flies by the Soviet Air Defense at the middle of the night. One of the military general spots it while strolling around the base.
  • I wonder what that plane is doing out here at this time of the night... It can't be a USSR  plane. 
  • So, wait a minute. It's a US spy plane? Oh! US you are gone. We won't let you go so easily!

  • What have I done? Now the USSR will kill me. What a shame! I have started the WW3.
  • Rudolf Abel - the Soviet spy and Francis Gary Powers- the US spy, were swapped for each other in February 1962 by both the US and USSR government.

  • Mr. Khrushchev, How about we do a prisoner swap?  You get Rudolf Abel and I get Francis Gary Powers.
