What is Operation KAL 007?
Tensions are peaking during the midst of the Cold War. A new international crisis has just kicked off after the crash of a Korean commercial airplane, and there is suspicion of foul play by the Soviet Union. As the President enters into reelection year, players must navigate the moral and informational dilemma of making the best decision for reelection while keeping the American people out of harm’s way.
The Operation KAL 007 simulation centers on the downing of a Korean airliner 007 in September of 1983. Participants take on a variety of roles in this interactive experience, including advisors to the President, top level military officials, members of the press, correspondents, top secret security officials, and even the President!
