"Max". On 1/9/1983 after Korean Air Lines (HL7442) bought this plane from Condor, a Soviet fighter aircraft shot down this aircraft by missile (during flying over Russian territory) into Okhotsk sea near Shakhalin Island and killed all people on board. A great tragedy!

D-ABYH (airframe shot down as Korean Airlines flight 007) was re-used on a Lufthansa 747-8I, which it's a bit ironic after D-ABYB (airframe crashed as Lufthansa flight 540) was omitted on the 747-8.
