What type of hybridization is present in XeF2?

Xe belongs to the noble gas family so has 8 valence electrons...Xe => 5s25p6....... Two of these are bonded with fluorine. Thus it is left with 6 electronss i.e. 3 lone pairs.... So hybridization is sp3d ....the shape that should be =>Trigonal bipyramidal.... But it has 3 lone pairs on equatorial plane & 2 bond pairs on axial final shape =>LINEAR...
