From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This category lists civilian airliners which were shot down. Airliners can be shot down deliberately by terrorists (e.g. Transair Georgian Airline shootdowns), attacked due to misidentification as enemy warplanes (e.g. Iran Air Flight 655), or they can stray into hostile airspace as a result of navigational errors (e.g. Korean Air Flight 007).
