September 1, 1983 - a Korean Airlines 747, carrying 269 people, is shot down while flying through Soviet airspace. Everyone on board is killed, including 61 Americans. Twenty-three casualties were children under the age of twelve. The Soviets claim the plane was on a spy mission and that their actions were justified. The United States insists that Russia fired without provocation. Join the Unsolved History team as they launch a new investigation into this tragedy, using technology and forensic science not available 20 years ago. Through careful re-examination of existing photographic, oceanographic and electronic records, experts set out to determine whether the KAL-007 disaster was simply a case of mistaken identity on the part of the Russian anti-aircraft - and whether flaws in the jet's navigational gear caused it to veer into unauthorised airspace. Plus, investigators look into the most puzzling aspect of all: Why was so little of the wreckage, including the remains of the passengers, never found.
The Night Flight Orchestra (Soilwork, Arch Enemy, etc.) have announced a May 19th release date through Nuclear Blast for their new album, “Amber Galactic“. Frontman Björn “Speed” Strid (also of Soilwork) commented: ‘Amber Galactic‘ was made during late nights and way too early mornings, when sometimes, in the corner of your eye, you can catch a glimpse of another dimension, where all the women are heartbroken space commanders in evening gowns, the champagne is always free and the drugs won’t hurt you. We wanted to create more than just a listening experience, instead we want it to be an alternative reality. We hope that after listening to ‘Amber Galactic‘, you’ll be wide-eyed, horny and slightly drunk.
