I heard about this story in Chris Pocock's first U-2 book, "Dragon Lady" when I joined the U-2 Program in 1989. I sure wish I had gotten to meet Col Maultsby before he died.

Quite a career. In addition to his U-2 time, he was shot down over Korea and was a POW for about 2 years. AND he was a member of the Thunderbirds.

You don't see that kind of career progression any more!

I read Gary Powers book. I think I remember him mentioning that quite a few other US spy plane pilots/crews were shot down over Russia over the years (not necessarily US flyers). Many of them are still listed as missing. Maybe 150-200. I think Powers believed some of them were also being held by the Russians while he was.
