Summary

How a hi-tech American gunship destroyed a civilian passenger aircraft in 1988. The USS Vincennes was defending oil tankers in the Persian Gulf when the plane appeared on their radar. Convinced it was an Iranian fighter preparing to fire a missile, the captain had it shot down - only to learn his target was an airliner carrying 290 people.
