Recordings of the communications between pilots of Soviet fighter planes and the ground control in the Far East Russian island of Sakhalin on Sept. 1, 1983. The ground control ordered a pilot to shoot down a Korean Airlines Flight 007 that entered Soviet airspace west of Sakhalin Island. Japans Self-Defense Forces SIGINT unit, located in Wakkanai, the northernmost tip of Japan, intercepted the communications.
