He was over the Sverdlovsk and the soviets shot him down. Unfortunately he could not reach the self-destruct button. He parachuted down straight to the KGB. The U.S. claimed that it was a weather plane .but the problem is that the soviets recovered the plane and it was almost fully

Because of it we lost 269 innocent lives that cannot be replaced. One little mistake of auto-pilot and hundreds lost by the Soviets. The U.S.S.R. made excuses and made up stories to not get in trouble for a week even though The U.S had proof of the stories being made up and the Korean plane making a mistake on accident. In the end the Soviets did fess up and said in a conference that the Soviet Union shot down the Korean airline flight 007 and would do it again if need be or if they wanted to so be careful where you
According to Susan Stamberg in her NPR article “Female WWII Pilots: The Original Fly Girls,” WASP pilots such as Elaine Harmon, “flew almost every type of military aircraft” and “ferried new planes long distances from factories to military bases and departure points across the country.” WASP pilots also “towed targets to give ground and air gunners training shooting — with live ammunition.” Thirty-eight WASP pilots were killed in flying accidents. Because WASP was founded as a paramilitary organization, the Army refused to allow its deceased fliers to be buried with military honors. No American flag draped the coffin of a fallen WASP pilot. Ironically, the WASP fliers’ death rate of 3.5% was greater than that of all other military services, except the Marines
Operation Nucflash On the Seahawk helicopter sat Cliff Stewart and the three other men of the Navy’s Special Operation team tasked with disarming dangerous explosives. They were returning from a successful mission and had just touched down on the deck of the USS Patriot when Cliff, the team 's leader received a call. “Lieutenant Stewart,” said a clipped voice, “this is Captain Wilson, Admiral Davidson’s chief of staff.” Cliff was suddenly alert, “Yes, sir.” “The admiral wants to see you in the war room, immediately.” Before Cliff could respond the line went dead. The USS Patriot was enormous and even though Cliff was moving as fast as he could, it still took him five minutes to navigate the 168 feet from the landing platform to the entrance of the war room. Standing outside the door, Cliff suddenly felt nervous; he had never been requested by the admiral, so it must be extremely important.
Back in the 1980’s, the drug cartels of Colombia were the cause of chaos all over the world – especially in the United States. In fact, at the height of their power, the Bogotá cartel supplied ninety per cent of Uncle Sam’s cocaine. The cartel was barbaric; assassinating anyone who stood in their way. To add to this, they also had the majority of the law enforcement system on their payroll. And, of course, at the heart of all of this was drug lord Carlos Ruiz and his loyal vice, Pablo Álvarez.
Causes and Effects of 9/11 September 11, 2001 was a horrific day for all American citizens. Four American commercial flights were hijacked by Islamic extremist that would soon crash into some of the most important structures in America. From that day on we will remember the ones we lost and the ones who gave their lives to save others. This was the first major attack since Pearl Harbor in 1941 on American soil. Nineteen militants who were suicide bombers crashed into the Twin Towers, Pentagon, and a Pennsylvania field which had a central and global effect on the world caused by global terrorism increase and the spread of the group Islamic Extremist.
This meant that the sky above my head was always clouded by planes and jets. At first the noise was really loud; everywhere you turned you heard the annoying drone of a plane soaring up above you. But after awhile, you get used to the sound. After 15 years of marriage my mom finally made a plan, and left my dad. This meant that we were thrown into a completely knew culture, off of the air force base.
Once they were close enough to their target, the Night Witches would idle their engines, glide towards the target, drop their bombs, and then progress backwards on the previous steps. The squadron earned their name because the only sound that the Germans could here was the whistling of the wind across their wings as they approached. Another notable Soviet Hero was Lyudmila Pavlichenko. Pavlichenko was a sniper on the eastern front and had over 300 kills confirmed kills. It is also important to note that Soviet women did also play a large part in the war industries, but their combat roles sets them apart from the western liberal
(sound effects ) you are in the cockpit of a B-24 Liberator bomber airplane during WW2. The date is 1943 and you are the test pilot for this plane. You fly in a steady line, watching as the world underneath you shrinks to where homes become tiny specs and cars look like the size of ants crawling on roads linked together. You are a WASP. The Women Airforce Service Pilots- or WASP was formed on August 5, 1943, and according to the Air Force Historical Support Division website the WASP were actually originally formed when two services WAFS- the Women’s Auxiliary Ferrying Squadron, which was a service in which women transported training airplanes from the factories to military bases.
