In Remembrance: 20 Years After Pan Am 103 Air Disaster

On Wednesday, 21 December 1988, Pan Am 103 (a Boeing 747 named "Clipper Maid of the Seas") was destroyed by a bomb, killing all 243 passengers and 16 crew members. Eleven people on the ground, in Lockerbie, Scotland, were also killed as large sections of the plane fell in and around the town, bringing total fatalities to 270.

The echoes of this tragedy still ring loud & clear, and there are still unresolved questions surrounding the real reasons & perpetrators of this horrible crime.
