Iraq: Missile fired at Nordic Airways plane
14 August 2007

The Swedish CAA is reviewing security conditions at airports in northern Iraq after a report of a possible missile attack on a Nordic Airways plane. On August 9, a McDonnell Douglas MD-83 of Nordic Airways took off from Sulaimaniya on a flight to Stockholm when pilots saw a flash and light of a missile rise from the ground, arc near the plane and then drop away as they climbed between 3,000 and 6,000 feet.
