Ted Stevens International Airport is an airport in Anchorage, Alaska. It has the IATA Airport Code ANC and is a hub of Alaska Airlines. The airport is named after senator Ted Stevens.
Anchorage was big with passengers flying to Japan back in the 1960's because U. S. Aircraft could not fly over Soviet airspace, and because they did not have the range that modern day aircraft have. Nowadays, Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport is mostly used for cargo.
Korean Air Flight KAL-007, which was bombed by Russian fighter planes over Soviet Union territory on September 1, 1983, was flying from this airport to Gimpo, near Seoul when it was attacked. The flight was routed John F. Kennedy International Airport to Kimpo International Airport with a stop in Anchorage. All 260 people on board died.
