The Mystery of Korean Flight 007
At the end of the Cold War, a Korean Airlines Jumbo Jet, Flight 007, left Anchorage Alaska bound for the South Korean capital of Seoul. Instead of an uneventful journey, the Jumbo Jet strayed northwards over a Russian missile firing range where a top secret missile was due to be tested.

What was behind this incredible mishap? - and was flight 007 shot down by accident or design?moreless
