Отличная фотография! Завидую, я так там и не побывала...

Виктор, здравствуйте! С этим снимком тебе повезло. Где фотографировал? Я имел удовольствие однажды проснуться в окружении, наверно котиков, это было в 1964 году, на Иттуруппе. Мы на ночь разбили палатку на берегу. А утром, я первый проснулся, был дежурным по кухне, слышу какие-то странные звуки, расстегиваю палатку, а вокруг нас лежбище. Они нас не то, что не боялись, а просто игнорировали. Был отлив, кромка моря отодвинулась прилично, и образовался пляж.

Это на острове Монерон. Участвовал в заброске горючего на маяк, потом прокатились вдоль острова.

Korean 747 airliner (KL007) was shot down by Soviet air force and crashed near that island.

Andrey Bogdanov on June 5, 2013

Yes, it took place.

KAL007 had over 500 km derivation of the international air route, besides, this flight had twice entered the air border of the USSR in strategically significant areas. As the second order for landing was denied, this aircraft was shot down. It’s a tragedy and not only Soviet Government or Soviet Air Force are responsible for the civil victims.

Sorry, but there was no communication with an aircraft (different frequences used by the Soviets), and Osipovich admitted after USSR collapsed that he saw many lights clearly identifiying the KAL007 as a big airliner.

Btw. There is an international law which specifically prohibits shooting down civilian planes, especially airliners.

Fortunately lawless USSR is no more.

Order for landing was sent by well visible in the night sky tracer bullet fire.

Frankly speaking, such modern aircraft could not lose its course without human order which came (to my mind) down from the CIA. Funny to stipulate, this was the only Boeing 747 in modern history which has 500 km derivation of international route. Isn’t it?

Though, I can say, all of the victims of KAL007 are on the conscience of the CIA.

And what about international law in connection with Iranian Airbas A320 shot down by U.S. missiles? Sure it’s not a good idea of shooting down civil aircrafts. Sincerely,

CIA has had as much to do with KAL007 incident as with the latest Asiana 777 crash at San Francisco Int.; namely nothing. Although decades of Soviet lies about the KAL007 obviously had their impact.
