In this documentary, in the form of a satellite map, is the 4th of a 7–part series of maps covering the growth of commercial aviation worldwide. With this map you can zoom in on the locations of the Commercial Aviation Crash sites during another violent period in commercial aviation history.

Included in this map are Korean Air Lines Flight 007, Gulf Air Flight 771, the Cerritos mid-air collision, Aloha Airlines Flight 243, Iran Air Flight 655, and United Airlines Flight 811.
