"At exactly three a.m. local time on the morning of August 31, 1983, a Korean Air Lines 747 took off from Anchorage (Alaska) International Airport on the final leg of its scheduled flight from New York to Seoul, South Korea. Aboard were (269 people)..." "Over Sakhalin, five hours & twenty-six minutes after takeoff, KE007 was struck by two Anab heat-seeking missiles...Nine minutes later, the aircraft plunged into the Gulf of Tartary...There were no survivors." So begins the introduction to DESIRED TRACK, Vol. I of the 2 volume set, a richly detailed, authoritative study & the only book about the downing of KE007 to be based on unassailable navigational evidence. Vol. II, an exhaustive bibliography, including actual flight records & radar data made available to the authors by the Central Intelligence Agency & data turned over to the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) in 1993 by Russian President Boris Yeltsin. A multi-colored fold-out map plots all relevant data. What the evidence proves is that KE007 WAS FLYING A PREPLANNED ROUTE DESIGNED TO TAKE IT INTO SOVIET AIRSPACE, almost certainly for intelligence-gathering. Allardyce & Gollin stress that their findings can be replicated. Richard Witkin, former aviation editor of THE NEW YORK TIMES, says of DESIRED TRACK: "It's the only account of the navigation that stands up, & nobody who has seen Bob Allardyce's work has been able to refute it."
