KAL 007's particular airway, R-20 (Romeo Two Zero), passes just 17.5 miles (28.2 km) from what was then Soviet airspace off the coast of the Kamchatka Peninsula.

was a scheduled Korean Air Lines flight from New York City to Seoul via Anchorage, Alaska.
Once that happened, the INS mode would change from "armed" to "capture" and the plane would track the flight-planned course from then on.
When the INS navigation systems were properly programmed with the filed flight plan waypoints, the pilot could turn the autopilot mode selector switch to the INS position and the plane would then automatically track the programmed INS course line, provided the plane was headed in the proper direction and within 7.5 miles (12.1 km) of that course line.
If, however, the plane was more than 7.5 miles (12.1 km) from the flight-planned course line when the pilot turned the autopilot mode selector from HEADING to INS, the plane would continue to track the heading selected in HEADING mode as long as the actual position of the plane was more than 7.5 miles (12.1 km) from the programmed INS course line.
On September 1, 1983, the South Korean airliner serving the flight was shot down by a Soviet Su-15 interceptor. The Soviet Air Force treated the unidentified aircraft as an intruding U. spy plane, and proceeded to destroy it with air-to-air missiles, after firing warning shots which were likely not seen by the KAL pilots.
The Boeing 747 airliner was en route from Anchorage to Seoul, but deviated from its original planned route and flew through Soviet prohibited airspace around the time of a U. The Korean airliner eventually crashed in the sea near Moneron Island west of Sakhalin in the Sea of Japan.
