Transcript Plane Crashes Typify '80's Russia, America and Europe all shared one common problem during the 1980's; airline disasters. Terrorism took the front seat in the destruction of civilian aircraft, but America and Russia managed to do some damage on their own. Korean Airline's flight 007 from Alaska to Korea was shot down by Russian jets after it strayed into Soviet air space. All on board perished, in cluding a U.S. congressman. The Soviets denied for several days that they had done the dasterdly deed. Finally, confirmation of the "KILL" came in a press conference held by the Russians. They claimed the craft was on a spy mission. As heat on the Russians began to fade and terrorist activities came to the forefront of the evening news, America took a pot shot at an airliner. The incident occured as our ships guarding the Persian Gulf waterway came under small boat attack. It was only a few minutes after radar on the U.S.S. Vinncense picked up and fended off a jet taking off from Bandar Abbas, Iran. Misinformation, tired crewmen, whatever the excuse, it happened. The captain dispatched two missiles that quickly de- Time article captures image of terror and destruction. Photo courtesy Time. stroyed the oncoming aircraft. America had repeated Russia's mistake; the world was in shock. Terrorist also rained death and destruction on the small Scottish village of Lockerbie. Remnants of the aircraft lay twisted about the countryside. Pan American flight 103 cratered the village of Lockerbie and destroyed forever the once peaceful lives of the villagers. A new Boeing 737 crashed days later in central England. Reversed wiring to an engine warning light led the pilot to switch off the wrong engine bringing him down on a sparsely crowded freeway. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) officials ordered all American owned 737's inspected. British officials grounded all 737's until in- soected. F.A.A. officials still say that flying is safer than driving! ► I.B.Young Flight Prepping 1990 Welcome aboard Friendly Airlines, I'm your stewardess for today's flight. I would like to point out a few of our safetey features. I would like you to no- tice the emergency doors that are located two in the front, two in the back, and two in the center. Please notice that your seat cushion is detachable and can be used as a flotation device. In the event of an emergency both an oxygen mask and a self- sealing, last will and testiment will drop from overhead. All attendants will be wearing the latest in mini parachutes, not to be alarmed — the last time one was put to use was two months ago. The flight attendants will be passing out your individudal ''inflight, last thought" saftey devices. Should all precautions fail, and in the event that time is available, the ingestion of this tablet will render the body non-functional within moments. Thank you for flying Friendly Airlines, where pain is only for the pock- etbook. ► I.B.Young 280 ■ Issues
