The aircraft that flew Korean Airlines Flight 007 - HL7442 - on the ground in Hong Kong possibly just days before its final flight as KAL 007 on September 1, 1983.

On September 1, 1983, The Soviets shot down Korean Air Lines Flight 007 just past Sakhalin Island. KAL 007 was carrying 269 passengers including 22 children under 12 years of age and a sitting U.S. congressman, Larry McDonald. All were believed lost.

The "Black Box" will tell us. KAL 007's Black Box can be viewed as a mechanism, or it can be viewed as a "fine instrument" or rather, fine instruments which together engulf us in a symphony of understandings as to what occurred on the flight deck that fateful night. More precisely, what happened the first minute and 44 second of that night.

With attention riveted on what can be heard from the Cockpit Voice Recorder of the Germanwings flight that was driven into the mountain side by its murderous and suicidal co-pilot, I offer to you what can be learned from the Cockpit Voice Recorder of KAL 007:

"What happened to KAL 007 when the missile exploded? How do the tapes help us to understand?

In a symphony, each instrument has its own individual "story line", yet there is one overriding theme that includes them all.

“In Their Own Words”

Orde Charles Wingate

Both my sons, Daniel and Jonathan, were mustered to their duty in the Israel Defense Forces to the grueling "weeding out" process undergone through the sand dunes and obstacles of the Wingate Institute, at the Mediterranean coast of central Israel. Who is this Orde Wingate, that the IDF uses an Institute named after him, whom Israel names the "Friend" - HaYedid? A Jewish philanthopist, a great Zionist? Not exactly. Jewish, no, a philanthropist, no, a Zionist, yes.
