WD>>> in times of peace... by accident or on purpose.

>> Did you include KAL 103?

WD> Among the hull-losses of Korean Airlines there is no flight 103

WD> Amazing fact though is that since 1980 they have had 11 major crashes

WD> May I suppose you are confused with Panam 103?

No. I was thinking of the KAL Boeing 747 the Soviets shot down. I might've
