I remember seeing the bridge crew on the news as the missile was launched. You can still hear about the Pam Am flight that was blown up over Scotland but Iranian Flight 655 doesn't play well since many American don't like to be reminded they are not all goodness and light. Yes, Utah it happened and we never apologized.
