Overview

The Korean airliner took off from Alaska innocently enough, but a series of human errors caused it to veer into Russian airspace. Russian military intelligence trailed the plane for hours before shooting it down.

The Last Flight of 007 is part of the Easy-to-Read non-fiction series “Disasters” that will engage readers of all ages, including English Language Learners.
