Question On Airspace

Thu Oct 11, 2001 12:09 am

If a plane is flying for example from Tokyo to London, most likely the must pass through Russian, china and airspace of numerous nations. Do they need promission first? I remember russian fighters shooting down a South Korean 747 because it fly into their airspace without permission. How about flying accross hostile countries like Iran, Iraq?

I know that most flight from Aisa to Israel passes through hostile middle easten countries.

No El Al flight ever passes over an Arab country (except Egypt, and Jordan, obviously).

Pacifism only works if EVERYBODY practices it
