Historical Note

Pan Am Flight 103 was destroyed by a terrorist bomb on December 21, 1988. Onboard the plane were 35 students studying abroad with Syracuse University. A total of 270 individuals died in the skies and on the ground at Lockerbie, Scotland as a result of the bombing. Since that date anniversaries have been commemorated at various locations from the village of Lockerbie to Arlington National Cemetery in Washington D.C. Each year during Remembrance Week, Syracuse University honors the 270 people killed. Particular attention is paid to milestone anniversaries every five years.
