Lillian and Allen Kohn

For 19 years, most of the world has unknowingly seen only a veil hiding the people of Flight 007.  When Lillian and Allen Kohn began to disappear behind the veil in the early morning hours of September 1, 1983, they were heading for a last-minute vacation in the Far East.  Back home in Bala-Cynwyd and Harrisburg, PA, and Louisville, KY, the couple's four children were still asleep.

A freelance writer, Lillian Kohn loved to write about "everything from art to computers to science", daughter Marsha Maikovich was quoted as saying in the Philadelphia Daily News.  Lillian had also written for the Christian Science Monitor, the Philadelphia Daily News, the Philadelphia Inquirer and Architectural Digest.  The couple were frequent overseas travelers, and Lillian loved to write about that more than anything.

Allen was a vice-president at the well-known 1980s stockbrokerage firm of Drexel Burnham Lambert. "...His children said yesterday that he could have retired at any time in the last few years.  But he loved working," according to another Daily News article.

The Kohns lived on Harvard Road in Bala-Cynwyd, with their 17-year-old son, Rob.  He learned on the morning news, at the same time as everyone else, that his parents were missing.
