>I assume you meant the U-2 shot down over Russia, rather than Cuba?
No. There was a U-2 shot down over Cuba during the Cuban missile crisis. This fact struck me as a surprise too.
This incident might be underemphasized because of the delicacy of the
situation at the time. The US and USSR were poised at the brink of
confrontation. In the minds of some people the shooting down of the U-2
might have been sufficient cause for attack upon Cuba, yet the overall
crisis was resolved instead without military conflict.
