    Wow. Good thing they were bad shots. Of course, to N.Korea that could imply that Southern soldiers aren't well trained.

    thinking that alcohol may somehow be involved. How could mistake a 744 for anything else?????

    Were they bad shots or was the 747 beyond rifle range?

    I'm wondering if it could also involve the fifth column.

    I made my first trip to Korea in 1970 , I WAS SITTING AT THE POOL IN THE CHOSUN HOTEL AND HEARD ANTI AIRCRAFT FIRE , I asked the waiter what was going on? , he said --oh!! that noise-- just shooting at a plane that violated our air space ,at that time they had two huge balloons in the air to define where aircraft were not allowed

    so they are trigger happy even today

    It's a bit disturbing that the soldiers didn't know that the plane was out of range for their weapons. Don't they learn this during basic training?

    For me, the question that came to mind is why are there only 119 people on a 744? Even if its a combi its still less than half full. Is it just a light load from Chengdu, or is it always that light? If its always that light why put a 744 on it? Is it a repositioning flight?
