Historical Note

On December 21, 1988 Pan Am Flight 103, a 747 named Clipper Maid of the Seas, was blown up over Lockerbie, Scotland. Since that date the incident has continued to make headlines. First, the investigation and eventual indictments in 1991 of two Libyan intelligence agents, Abdel Basset al-Megrahi and Lamin Khalifa Fhima, were covered by news outlets across the globe. The trials held at Camp Zeist in the Netherlands in 2001 and the eventual release of al-Megrahi, the only person convicted of the bombing, in 2009 returned Pan Am 103 to the world spotlight. Recent events in Libya, including the fall of the Gaddafi regime, have brought Pan Am 103 back into headlines once again. All these events and more are documented in the Clippings Collection at the Pan Am 103 Archives.
