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.

I still think it was no coincidence that Powers was shot down just months after a radar operator for a major U-2 base, Lee Harvey Oswald, defected to the Soviet Union.
