i was young when this happened, but i still remember it like it was today.
Shootdown of Korean Air Flight KAL007 http://www.adn.com/article/20140723/monitors-archives-shootdown-korean-air-flight-kal007 http://www.people.com/people/archive/article/0,,20085947,00.html
There were 269 people aboard, including US Rep. Lawrence McDonald (D) of Georgia. There were no known survivors.
Rep. McDonald was originally scheduled to fly on on a previous flight. He missed that plane by just minutes because of a thunderstorm. He passed on a Pan Am flight to take advantage of a sponsored ticket for KAL007.
