The aircraft flying as Korean Air Lines Flight 007 was a commercial Boeing 747-230B.
On September 1, 1983, the South Korean airliner serving the flight was shot down by a Soviet Su-15 interceptor. The Soviet Air Force treated the unidentified aircraft as an intruding U. spy plane, and proceeded to destroy it with air-to-air missiles, after firing warning shots which were likely not seen by the KAL pilots.
The Boeing 747 airliner was en route from Anchorage to Seoul, but deviated from its original planned route and flew through Soviet prohibited airspace around the time of a U. The Korean airliner eventually crashed in the sea near Moneron Island west of Sakhalin in the Sea of Japan.
