Historical Note

The Families of Pan Am 103/Lockerbie was founded shortly after the tragedy. The group included 160 families of the victims of the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103/Lockerbie Air Disaster, as well as three American families of victims of the French UTA bombing. Under the guidance of chairman Paul Hudson, father of Pan Am Flight 103 victim Melina Kristina Hudson, the group sought to establish an airline security system, release warnings of potential threats to passengers, and bring to justice all individuals and groups involved with the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103.
