Narrative:
A Pacific Airlines aircraft tries to fly Alaska-Amsterdam over the North Pole but lacks sufficient charts and strays towards Russia. Norwegian radar picks up this and scrambles two Norwegian AF F-16 to direct the 707. This is less than a year after a KAL airplane is shot down over soviet airspace.
