I remember seeing some of the wreckage of his plane in the Armed Forces Museum in Moscow where it is proudly displayed.

There are still a lot of questions about that—whether the wreckage displayed really was the U-2 or not; why the CIA continued the flights even after Eisenhower had expressly ordered they be halted, to avoid just the kind of mishap which occurred, prior to his planned first trip to the USSR;
whether the entire incident wasn’t a set-up; etc.
