Update on KAL 007

June 5, 2003

While this came in two months ago, I apologize for being so tardy in getting it posted:

Dear Friends,

This is to alert you to changes to our website, www.rescue007.org, and to
inform you of important news.

Many people wonder if the crew of KAL 007 had enough control over the wide-body aircraft to land it successfully considering that it had sustained significant damage to its hydraulic systems. We have posted on our website an excerpt from "Rescue 007:  The Untold Story of KAL 007 and its Survivors" that compares this air disaster with several others, relying on the Cockpit Voice Recorders (CVR) showing what might have been possible. CVRs from other air disasters provide us with startling and dramatic peeks into their last moments.  It can be chilling reading.

In addition to this new posting, we have been working to clarify some confusing points in our Frequently Asked Questions and other postings.  As you review the material on the site and share it with others, we trust that any confusion there might have been is now taken care of.

As always, we appreciate your continued feedback and questions.  Let us know if there are things that still need to be addressed because they are confusing or missing something.  Thanks!

Yours, for the rescue!
Ben Torrey

Dear Friends,

This is to alert you to changes to our website, www.rescue007.org, and to inform you of important news.

One of the greatest and most poignant mysteries surrounding the downing of KAL 007 is summed up in the question, "Where are the bodies?"  This question haunted friends and family members from the very first day.  We believe, of course, that there were no bodies because the plane was not destroyed with the passengers aboard.

We have posted an excerpt from "Rescue 007: The Untold Story of KAL 007 and Its Survivors compares this air disaster with others that followed it through the years including the space shuttle Challenger and TWA Flight 800.  In all cases bodies, luggage and wreckage were recovered in great quantities.  With both the Challenger and TWA 800, all bodies were recovered.

To the list included in this excerpt, we may now add the recent tragic destruction of the space shuttle Columbia at the great altitude of over 200,000 feet.  From this accident, debris scattered over hundreds of square miles, including body parts and a video tape recorded minutes before the tragedy, have been recovered.  You will find this excerpt raising very serious
questions about the fate of KAL 007.

As always, we appreciate your continued feedback and questions.  Let us know if there are things that still need to be addressed because they are confusing or missing something.  Thanks!

Yours, for the rescue!
