"Japan has declassified the materials about the events that took place in the 1970s and the 1980s. The materials lift the veil about secret negotiations between the governments of Japan and the United States about the South Korean jetliner that was downed by the USSR on September 1, 1983.
Officially, Washington said that Moscow shot down the South Korean Boeing deliberately. However, two months after the tragedy, a senior US official told Japan that the Soviet Union shot down the plane by mistake, having taken it for a US reconnaissance aircraft.
On September 1, 1983 the South Korean Boeing-747 was flying from New York to Seoul. For an unknown reason, the plane deviated from its course and entered Soviet airspace above Kamchatka. The airliner reached the territory of Sakhalin, where it was shot down by the Soviet Air Force."
Larry McDonald the most fearsome enemy of the New World Order was on board the plane. The planes autopilot was tampered with and the plane was flying with its navigation lights out and withstood from establishing radio contact with the Soviet Sukhoi Su-15 fighter jets, 500 km deviated from its course, flying over an area full of Russian surveillance equipment. Sending a plane to that area, was comparable to a suicide. The PTB got what they wanted, Larry McDonald was eliminated.
